My self-summary
A way left leaning nature boy that likes to bite off more than he can chew.

I've lived one year in Hollywood (not fun), three years in Pistol river (lotsa fun) and the rest of the time I've been here in Portland (Home). I'm on here to take more of an active role in finding a partner, I usually just pick from who picks me as I'm a little shy. I've been getting better about approaching women in "real life" but you can't beat the numbers here (I'm kind of a numbers/science guy). I'm mainly looking to make some new friends and create new social circles, be nice to find that special someone but in the past cupids arrow has always hit me in the ass. I'm a little difficult to describe, .My greatest personal rewards come from helping others and if I can incorporate that into what I'm doing it helps to motivate me. I see my neighborhood as my tribe, think learning is forever, dig my organic garden, honest (brutally), good team player (obviously missing a team), my word and my heart are both gold, love plants and animals and I eat them both, handy, faithful, funny, cute and a living contradiction in a lot of ways.

I'm looking for a friend/lover that balances me and while physical attraction is important my favorite feature has always been the brain. Also looking for honesty (harder to find than I thought but not too jaded yet), organization (I lack that) and loyalty (who isn't?).
What I’m doing with my life
Recently returned to Portland from living off grid on the southern coast of Oregon. While living out my childhood dream was an experience I wouldn't change, I do believe city living done right can be more sustainable. Since I've been back I've opened a business with that thought in mind. It's not going to make me rich but I do get a lot out of it. I've been working more hours than I would like but recently am taking time off to do some traveling, work on the house/garden and maybe do a little dating.
I’m really good at
Pretty good at most things but really good at just a few:
back/foot rubs
making people laugh
The first things people usually notice about me
The eyes are most mentioned but who really knows?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read mostly text books and how to's....not much fiction but Dr. Seuss is a genius.
I like movies...couple favorites off the top of my head; Charlie and the chocolate factory, shawshank, usual suspects....not big on horror or most sci fi, loved "the thing" though.
No tv but kinda miss the OPB, I believe we're getting programed more than watching programs.
I like most music...not big on techno or the bible rock.
I love food and I eat most everything, probably what I missed most about Portland.
Six things I could never do without
I'd rather not do without:
clean water
clean air
good food (my garden)
community (the tribe)
breaking rules
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My brain is constantly going, easier to list what I don't spend a lot of time thinking about.
On a typical Friday night I am
No clue but I like to do things during the week when it's less crowded.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I prefer to smoke "herb" over drinking alcohol (neither is a problem), just works better for me. I don't mind if you drink and every once in a while I'll join you but to be honest drunk people annoy me. So if you're a "drinker", like to get drunk often and say things like, "you can't control me" as you make an ass of yourself in front of my friends than I think we should break up now. I'll take a pass on anyone with harder habits as well.

....and I've never been to prison.
You should message me if would like to meet me. If I'm interested I'm going to want to meet right away. While computers are great for screening people....I think they suck as a way to get to know someone.
The two of us
