My self-summary
Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully you will find me as charming and amusing as I do. Seriously, who really likes to write about themselves? I like to have fun and enjoy life. That can be anything from crashing my dirtbike on the side of a muddy hill to cleaning up and enjoying a meal at the Portland City Grill. Most nights I eat dinner out at someplace simple on Hawthorne or Division. Traveling, having adventures, dicovering new places in my neighborhood or just going to a movie at the Bagdad are all fun, especially when I go with someone I like. Live music is always something I'm up for. Work takes up the normal 40-50 hours of my week and sometimes I will travel or work the occasional weekend. I try hard not to let my work define me, but it is a major part of my life and it has contributed to the development of my personality. Dating is fun. It's amazing when you are dating the right person. Ultimately, I am looking for a partner. It's fun to experience life with someone you have enough in common with to be at ease and enjoy each others company even in the quietest moments and yet have enough individuality to constantly be challenging each other to grow, learn and experience new things. Humor is one of the most grounding things in my life. I've found that people who approach life with good humor are more resilient, successful and inspiring than those who do not.
What I’m doing with my life
My high school guidance counselor said I was wasting it, but how can anyone make a determination like that so early in the game? I've been busy getting an education, developing as a professional, learning to be a good and caring partner, exploring the world, discovering who I am and trying not to make too big a mess when I eat lobster or spagetti.
I’m really good at
I am really good at answering the multiple choice questions. Click on that tab and check out my responses. Like everyone else, I'm good at the things I care about and the things that interest me. Challenging myself to be good at things that don't interest me is one of the things that sets me apart from others, especially at work.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor. From a distance my chest has been mentioned as noticeable. Once people are closer, they usually mention my eyes. I just wish people would notice how intelligent and sensitive I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
