My self-summary
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 kickball team and some fun hikes. Always looking for new ideas for adventures.

Some random things I like: movies, food carts, board games, drinking tea, , nachos, reading, Netflix, video games, photography, long walks, exploring new parts of town, Meetups, baseball, kickball; and when possible, any combination of these activities.
What I’m doing with my life
For the past few years I've been working in the advertising field for a tech company out in Hillsboro. It's been a great fit.

Out of college, I worked at a series of non-profits, including a wonderful year in AmeriCorps. As someone who graduated in the middle of the recession without a clear idea what I wanted to do, I'm pretty happy how things have turned out.
I’m really good at
Singing Disney songs at karaoke, Mario Kart, amateur photography, baking chocolate chip cookies, finding appropriate puppy and kitten photos in most contexts, bowling, remembering odd details, taking long walks, naming all the presidents and being kind of silly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told the sound of my voice is pretty distinctive. Could it be a midwestern accent?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I was an English major, so I have a weakness for the classics. To name a few favorites: Darkness at Noon, Brave New World, Slaughter-House Five, One Hundred Years of Solitude, and Pride and Prejudice. Some other favorites: Harry Potter, the Hunger Games and Ready Player One.

Movies: I always see the films nominated for best picture. Most recently I enjoyed The Martian and Steve jobs.
Some others: Inception, ALL THE PIXAR FILMS, Moonrise Kingdom, Lord of the Rings, Lost in Translation, Miyazaki (My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away), Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World

T.V: I'm usually hooked on some series on Netflix. Most recently: Master of None.
Some other favorites: The Wire, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Friday Night Lights, Parks and Rec.
The six things I could never do without
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
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.
You should message me if
If you think it'd be fun to get to know each other.

If you would like to fly kites or eat smores, possibly at the same time.

I'm very interested in learning partner dances like Salsa, Swing and Waltzing. I'm keeping an eye out for a potential dance partner to take some classes with.
