ADK 46er. Moved to Oregon in October 2012 after 13 years in upstate NY. Enjoying exploring the area, not as different from upstate as one might imagine.
I like beer (Ommegang Rare Vos, Ithaca Flower Power, Boneyard Hop Venom), mountains (Adirondacks, San Juans, Tetons) and bikes (Campagnolo, steel, square taper, CX). I drive a Subaru (station wagon, manual transmission). I love go hiking, camping, skiing biking for the weekend. I don't think any of this particularly makes me stand apart in OR;) I used to do triathlons and run marathons and all of that stuff, these days I mostly just race bikes, cause winning, duh!
My friends and co-workers would say I am very reliable, I always deliver on my promises. So I can be very serious about getting things done, but I also like to have a good time.
I spend a lot of time cooking. I generally prepare all my food from scratch and I find cooking very enjoyable.
I live in Corvallis. It is not the big city, but I have an awesome job, a chance to change the world. Hoping to get some flexibility to be able to move to PDX in the next year or two, but right now I have too much responsibility and I need to be in the office in Corvallis on a daily basis.
