My self-summary
Hey, I'm Matt - a happily adopted Oregonian since 2013 :)

I'm a total extrovert and really enjoy meeting people. I'm a geek and really enjoy things like board and classic video games, but I also enjoy volunteering in the community and spend my other free time hiking, cycling, camping, kayaking or hanging with friends watching movies. I'm also a patron of the arts. You can always convince me to attend a concert, play, or movie, but I'm also a fan of checking out a new place for a cocktail or beer.
What I’m doing with my life
I've lived all over the U.S., and spent some time abroad as well. I'm actively working on advancing my way up the ladder in the world of public service. I spend some of my free time volunteering with wounded veterans and local museums - Come see me in the Earth Science hall at OMSI.

I also recently finished an MPA program at Portland State.
I’m really good at
- Making new friends and acquaintances. Relationships enrich our lives, and I enjoy meeting all sorts of fascinating people wherever I travel.

- Active listening, and providing advice and perspectives. A therapeutic session of conversation and reflection is good for the mind and soul.

- Organizing events on the fly; I'm that virgo planner, so I'm skilled at bringing people together.

- Board and video games. I enjoy activities that make my mind tick. I'm always looking for a Luigi...
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm 6'3", and strikingly handsome
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I like murder mysteries the best, but am also a fan of the classics. I actually have written one, myself. I suppose what I read most often is the Washington Post every morning on my kindle. Not a book, but printed word, nonetheless...

Movies - Action movies, dramas, comedies...I always give everything a chance. I have an active netflix account that keeps me up to date on the things I don't see in the theater. There are some great second run theaters in Portland, and I'm always up for going to a $3 show with a beer.

Music - I'm eclectic. I listen mostly to alternative rock, but also like classic rock, jazz, electronica, classical, and bluegrass. I'm also a my life I've played piano, sax, clarinet, and have sang professionally. I'm involved with the Rose City Freedom Bands here in Portland.

Food - I'm a foodie. I love to cook, and always enjoy trying new things. My grandmother was French...I can cook some amazing Country French cuisine.
Six things I could never do without
1) The interwebs
2) Music
3) Technology - we live in the information age, man.
4) Outdoor recreation
5) Beer - total snob, right here.
6) Coffeeeeeeeeeeee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What else to do with my life, and with whom I will be spending it
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hosting a board game meetup, playing bridge (not just for old ladies any more!), hanging out with friends, or grabbing a brew at the local pub. I generally don't like clubbing, but will go with friends on occasion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me anything, I'll give you an honest answer. But prefer to do it face to face, or directly.
You should message me if
You have the missile launch codes. I seem to have misplaced them.
The two of us
