My self-summary
Making my peace with the fact that I have evolved from a wild punk rocker into a somewhat quiet introvert. I can still hold a conversation decently well, and the tattoos aren't going away, but I'm not who I was when I was 18. Who is really? I came to Portland about 13 years ago.

I was recently accepted into a nursing program and will be busy with that for the next 2 years.

I drank alcohol for the very first time on January 3rd of 2014.

I have pretty strong allergies to cats and dogs. It makes it hard to spend time at other peoples houses, since everyone in this town seems to have one, or both. I have some allergy medications that work pretty well, but it would be great if you don't get offended that I don't play with your animals.

For 8 years I rode a 49cc scooter as my main mode of transportation, rain or shine. I took it on longer trips than people say I should. I recently got a car again to make it to my clinical rotations, but the scooter lives on.

In June 2012 I went out to eastern Oregon and made this video.

I like taking on lots of projects/hobbies, frequently too many. I love to make books, cook, garden,dance, and work on my (rental) home.

I have had a vasectomy and will not be producing any children. If that is a deal breaker, I understand. If not, please continue...
What I’m doing with my life
Doing my best to navigate the tricky transition from being a kid to an adult. From staying out til 5am, to waking up at 5am.

I work in healthcare serving the HIV/AIDS community. Going to school and being overwhelmed by it. Traveling as much as I can manage.

I took my first international trip in December 2015. Went to Iceland and Paris. It was incredible.
I’m really good at
keeping composure
hearing what's not said
The first things people usually notice about me

Six things I could never do without
fresh air
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my next trip will take me, how to finish that one book making project, what's for dinner?
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, then considering going out dancing before falling asleep early.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book in conversation, here though... no thanks.
You should message me if
You would like to know the story. You want to drink coffee near each other. You want someone with an odd perspective to talk with. Or if you want a date? Does date sound old fashioned to anyone else?
The two of us
