I'm originally from Oregon - the most beautiful place in the world - but the climate and craft beer scene here more than make up for the sales tax and pumping my own gas. I've been incredibly fortunate in my friends, family, and life opportunities, and try to live a philosophy of leaving people and things better than I found them. I enjoy flying airplanes, creating and listening to music, traveling, playing tennis, and pub quizzes, and am trying to figure out which country I'll move to in a couple years and how exactly I'll accomplish that.
I get along easily with people and am fairly outgoing for an introvert (INTJ, for those who like to categorize), but I still enjoy my downtime. I'm attracted to outspoken women who are literate, driven, warm and genuine with style and a great sense of humor.
I feel the need to mention this because the site's algorithms won't catch it: if The Big Bang Theory is your favorite show, we're not a match and are, in fact, more than likely 90% enemies.
Movies: lots. Most recently saw Gravity. It was gorgeous and terrifying (in a Nietzchean kind of way).
