My self-summary
I've decided to reactivate my account here, after quite a time away, so while most if not all of this information is still valid, it definitely needs an update...

I'm incredibly upfront and honest, almost to a fault.

I like to think that I'm a genuine human being. Compassion, self-awareness and contentment are all qualities that I value.

I moved here about 6 years ago and I still love every bit of Portland life. Even though I have been here for this long I still know there is so much more I have to experience about the PNW.

I love lazy Saturday mornings after a long work week...
What I’m doing with my life
I've graduated with a degree in Electronics Engineering and now I spend my days running a small business here in Portland. I absolutely love my job and right now couldn't see myself doing anything else.

I've been traveling a lot more often for work and a little more for pleasure lately.

Since moving to Portland a few years ago I've been building an amazing group of friends in a city I'd never been to before. I cherish all of the amazing people in my life and keep them close in my life. Trust is very important to me and I choose those in my life carefully.
I’m really good at
Motivating others.

Navigating.

Saving kittens from burning buildings.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd rather you tell me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've spent the last couple years reading technical textbooks on circuit design so I haven't had time to read for pleasure. The last books I read were by Jon Krakauer or Charles Bukowski and I'm open to suggestions!

Archer, Ted Talks, It's always sunny, Better off Ted, Netflix.

American Beauty, Into The Wild, Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Netflix.

DJ Krush, Lotus, Arctic Monkeys, Fat Freddy's Drop, The Album Leaf, Avenged Sevenfold, Zero7, Bonobo, Atmosphere, Thievery Corporation, Pretty Lights and so many more.

Thai.
Italian.
Tiramisu.
I eat a gratuitous amount of chips and salsa...
The six things I could never do without
Family
Spotify
Desire
Vegetables
My amazing friends across the country
Sunshine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'd like to spend more of my days in a ceramics studio again.

What is normal?

How did I get here? This is not my home, this is not my beautiful wife. And da nah nah nah, and then something something, and dinnnah nah nah.

Also,
New Zealand.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't think that I have a "typical Friday night" kind of life. The structure of my day to day is ever changing and I am sometimes incredibly busy or completely free.

I'm probably out exploring somewhere anyways but I am perfectly content staying in with Netflix and a glass of wine, or going out to a comedy show or any sort of live performance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm ridiculously ticklish...
Seriously. Not cool.

I'm also that guy that:
1) Goes to Starbucks.
2) Orders a coffee for Waldo.
3) Leaves.
You should message me if
You should message me if you are active, healthy, passionate, motivated, intelligent, or just have the desire to stir up something in the city or go hit the trails outside of that last little town we saw Fourty minutes ago... :)
