My self-summary
I just returned from a year in California, and holy hell am I glad to be back home. Honest, compassionate guy with a deep love for ideas. American Vegan. I love talking about how things influence and affect society. I enjoy all facets of modern culture from art, science, and politics to movies, music and video games. I will challenge your assumptions as I hope you do mine. I have a great deal of respect for deep thinkers and those who are willing to talk about the complexities of modern day life. I'm interested in gender studies, feminism, intersectionality and consider myself well versed, but I'm always willing to learn more as it's a constant learning process. I'm open minded, and am considerate of others boundaries. Fuck the patriarchy and fuck racism.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm going to school for VFX. I'm a bartender at a great spot downtown, I probably make more money than you do, so I'm really busy but in a good way. If I make plans, I keep them. I really enjoy dancing, and I'm actually rather good at it. If you want to head out to a soul night I'm so down. I'm not new to this town, but show me what's up! Though don't think I need anyone else to get me started, I'll probably be on the dance floor before you will.
I’m really good at
Haha. I don't know. adapting to different situations. Keeping my cool. Acting like a fool? I make pretty good food and mix a damn fine cocktail.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be rather loud at times, but in bursts. I am shy and then I EXPLODE WITH ENTHUSIASM. I believe most people really don't know what to think of me at first. What I'm saying is, I get better with time... hah. Also I'm quite charming in person, I seem sort of boring on paper...

Six things I could never do without
Uhm. Beans and Rice. Avocados. DS9 reruns. Guayaki Yerba Mate. A copy of OK Computer and some way to listen to it. A good pair of socks. That's six, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The ethics and possibilities of technology and how it will help or harm us. The Future of the Internet. Why there aren't better female characters on TV. How to make the best Cheese Alternative. Horror movies, TV, Halloween and Fall.
On a typical Friday night I am
99% Chance I am at Chesa, but a good chance I'm getting drinks somewhere or at (insert late night PDX vegan spot). I'm trying to drink less beer, despite the fact that I enjoy it. Lately I've spent every other Friday at Lovecraft. I love the puzzle box. Possibly a movie at Living Room Theaters or a drag or burlesque show at Ember's or Dante's.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have any tattoos, nor do I want any.
You should message me if
You're cool with nerds and have good amounts of energy. I'm always down to hang out, get a coffee, a drink, see a movie, wander around. I'm down for whatever really. Just looking for chemistry. You want to watch some X-files, TNG reruns.
The two of us
