I like meeting new people and/or playing music for them; Dancing's
a plus. I love adventure and crave excitement, therefore it's very
seldom that I am stagnant. I love the open highway and seeing all
the sites of this country from the Tetons to Zion, Oregon's Coastal
range to Vermont's Green Mountains, but I also love my time spent
enjoy all the things to do in this spectacular city with my friends
here in Portland.
I appreciate the things that make me grow as person which is
centrally focused around my friends on one side and figuring it out
for myself on the other. I have lot to learn but I also love
learning so it's not so bad. I'm passionate about what I do and
enjoy surrounding myself with people who are of a similar mind on
that level. Knowing what you love in life and wanting to share your
passions is also a definite plus. They definitely don't have to be
the exact same things as I'm into because how do you know what you
don't like till you try it? I smile and try to have a good time
with who I'm with way too much as I'm pretty damn optimistic,
positive, and getting to know new people is an adventure in and of
What I’m doing with my life
Traveling with my band across the country playing fiddle and singing for smiling strangers and pretty much doing that on a constant basis. I suppose I also do this when I'm home in Portland.
I’m really good at
Being spontaneous, fiddle, and not killing house plants.

The six things I could never do without
2. My Friends
3. Being on the road playing music
4. Spontaneous adventure undertakings
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'm going and how I'm going to get there, how to get the process started, and how I'm going to follow through with it all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing a show/enjoying a friends show, at a bar with friends (probably because of said show), camping, hiking, and/or at the coast or on a mountain.
You should message me if
You like adventure, you're interested in finding someone you can laugh, converse, and have fun with. Bars are fine, but I'd prefer coffee first, then maybe an adventure, then go from there.
