For some reason I am incapable of filling this section out. Apparently it gives me an existential crisis to try to sum my self up.
I should explain that I don't currently live in downtown, although I did for many years. I moved to Silverton Oregon when I joined the family business (which I am currently in the process of buying). I am moving the business in August, in order to expand, and it will be much closer to Portland, which will allow me to move back. I am in Portland quite a bit. I would be happy to make plans to meet, but because of logistics I can't meet without a bit of notice.
At 19 I became a hairstylist. I enjoyed that job very much. It allowed me to travel a lot, had great hours and let me be very social.
A few years ago I decided to join my families (plant) nursery business. I'm very happy with my decision and look forward to many years of growing and breeding plants.

I love listening to music, some of my favorites are:
Florence and the Machine
The White Stripes
Neutral Milk Hotel
I like science fiction books, television shows and movies, though I rarely watch movies and refuse to go to the movie theatre.
I love all kinds of food, and eating is one of my favorite things to do. I feel so lucky to live in a time when such vast amounts of diverse food is available.
I think that it is hard to understand most things without a sense of history, culture, society and general paradigms. I enjoy reading historical fiction because of this. I enjoy reading in general, fiction and nonfiction.
You're willing to talk via okcupid for awhile before we talk on the phone or meet. I am not willing to talk to anyone on the phone or meet with anyone without first messaging on here for a week or two.
I'm looking for friends, and may be willing to go on a date. I would like to mention now that I think that it is ridiculous for one party to pay for the entire date. I prefer to pay for my share of the date. It's just more fair that way.
Also, just to save you time, I have a very strong aversion to goatees. It borders on a phobia. Beards, mustaches and sideburns are all fine, but I can't deal with goatees.
