Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, I'm Tommy. Originally from the midwest, I've been in the
Portland area almost five years now and can't imagine a cooler
place to live. Looking for fellow explorers.
Some favorite adventures in recent memory: dressing as Waldo for a
zombie walk, paddling in a giant pumpkin, salsa classes, starting a
nacho club, visiting my brother in Japan, being captain of a

For the past few years I've been working in the advertising field

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Remember that part of Harry Potter where Voldemort separated his
soul into 7 horcruxes? That would be a cooler question. I have a
few things in mind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I'm feeling down, I look up pictures of corgis on image search.
Also, I do this in any other mood.
I'm also a fan of a Japanese television mascot named Domo Kun.
