My self-summary
I love living in Portland. Love the coast too.

I enjoy simple things like a beautiful hike or bike ride. I love a happy cat (or two) on my lap, an evening picnic in a park, sunsets at the ocean, a walk in a forest, a warm woodstove in the winter.

Friendship, experiences, adventures, and my animal family are the most important to me. I also like art in my life. I would love to meet someone who finds great joy in simple, beautiful things, and who values friendship, loyalty, and respect.
What I’m doing with my life
.At work I fly hundreds of trusting strangers around the airline skies every week. At home, I'm often a project-home improvement person. I plan to be self employed and/or retired-ish in a few years, by choosing financial self-defense, betting against the debt-to-infinity, corrupt financial systems. New directions to be determined.
I’m really good at
Tinkering and fixing things
Finding agates on beach walks
Building a bunch of my own furniture
I have been told I have a good eye for art
The big picture
Making cats happy

I spend a lot of time thinking about
That life can be pretty great if you relax and just figure it out as you go, accepting that there is no perfect map. How important one person can be in the life of another, and how just one friend can lead to so many others. How much I love looking at stars on a dark night away from the city.
On a typical Friday night I am
Just about anything, at home, at work, having fun, ...?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I named my new bicycle after a cat I loved and had to say goodbye to a while ago-- I had it painted his color and had his name is painted on it. Maybe not too private, but it is pretty personal to me, and it just became the most precious non-living thing in my life. And I just painted my house about that same color too. There may be a pattern here...
You should message me if
You think there might be something fun to explore. You need someone to lift heavy objects on request. You don't cry because things end, you smile because they happened...
