My self-summary
I’m a happy person. Quietly confident. INTJ. I lean more toward humility than being a braggart and the center of attention. I prefer to be judged by my actions. I'm open-minded but also know exactly where I stand. I’m optimistic in life but try to be realistic and reasonable in my decisions. I find happiness in the simple things. Born and raised Oregonian and of course love being out in nature. I try to be a DIY person as much as I can. I build model rockets and fly remote control helicopters because the kid in me still wants to reach for the stars. I graduated from Portland State University with a major in English and minors in Philosophy and Creative Writing. I prefer game nights with friends and family over large parties. I’m a Blazers, Seahawks and Beavers fan.

I tend to go for the girl next door type. I'm looking for a smart, sweet, goofy, loyal, hard working, laid back teammate. Someone optimistic, that can see the potential in things and always looks for the bright side. A girl that cares about nature and animals; that loves the outdoors, hiking, backpacking, camping, fishing and the rest.

The following are endorsements from my friends and family:

“He keeps his cool, doesn’t blow his top. He’s an inspiration.” –Mt. St. Helens

"He's so manly that I'm ashamed of my mustache when I'm around him." -Ron Swanson

“He’s very rugged.” -Mt. Everest

“We all think he’s a jerk.” –Paris Hilton, George W. Bush, Kobe Bryant, old people drivers, the goo goo dolls, and the guy that invented accidentally biting your cheek.

“He’s quick to lend an ear. A good listener.” -Mike Tyson and Van Gogh

“He’s very thoughtful and optimistic. We like to stare down at him at night and contemplate our existence.” –The stars

I consider myself a bit of a dork. Not to be confused with nerd, or geek.
