Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, damn. Ok. So this profile is more than eight years old.
Evidently, time flies in the Never Never Land that is being young
and queer in Portland. Somewhere in there I went to legendary
parties, worked too much, quit my job, lived in a camper. I spent a
whole summer tan and half naked. Wrecked a camper, grew dozens of
beards, went to some weddings. Got a late start on the right career
track. Had a few more nieces and nephews, lost my cat to old age,
lost my best friend to cancer. Been in love, what? Three? Four
times? Had one of the best birthdays of my life, then one of the
worst. I'm going to catch this thing up, but. You know. Work in

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Someone once told me that trying to define yourself is like trying
to bite your own teeth. This question makes me think of that.
I’m really good at

stuff. Making things. Interpreting design. I'm good with materials,
people, narrative structure, visual composition. Laundry. I'm good
at kind of arcane details, synthesizing ideas, conversation.
Mediocre at sports (who knew). Pretty bad at things like making
appointments and knowing how to interface with, you know, (srsly,
totally non judgmental tone) bureaucratic stuff. I'm good at
knowing what my feelings are but mysteriously not always very good
at actually feeling them, so I'm still figuring that one out. I
have a lot of feelings. I'm good at bringing it. Srsly. I am pretty
damn good at having a damn good time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
everything. All the time. It's the part of me that takes up the
most space, the thinking part. It's best that you either be of a
similar sort or that you have one of those other-worldly sedating
kinds of personalities because my mind is like two squirrels in a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Vacillating wildly between being a party boy and a mountain man.
Lately this has meant an intensified art/design/craft practice in

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not very private.
Also, I think I look at the same okc profiles over and over again
because I can't necessarily tell if I'm walking in circles, I
actually know these people IRL, or if I just click on the same
profiles over and over again.

mentioning I'm trans? Fuck it. I'm sure you'll cope.)
Major, major points if you're a girl. I like boys, too. I just, you
know, don't get okcupid hit on by girls nearly as much.
