I'm a maker. I blacksmith, turn wood. I like to cook and play with my cocktail shaker. I write.
I'm a traveler. I'm a cyclist and cyclotourist and I do like to hike. I like wandering old cities and meeting people on the other side of the world. Then I like coming home and getting to work.

“You’re wearing a suit, WHY ARE YOU WEARING A SUIT???”
“You’re being attacked by ice bears.”
“You’ve got very pretty eyes.”
“This is for OKCupid isn’t it?”
Food in Portland? The lunch bento at Miyake. Wat and injera at Asmara. Lazy Sunday brunch at Bao Bao. Meze at Falafel Underground on the patio out back. A pourover at Tandem. A financier from Standard. Cocktails from Vinland or Hunt&Alpine or 188.
