Hey, I'm Matthaios!
Portland, Oregon, United States · Member since January 2011

Hello:) I'm a former world traveler, but for the moment my wanderings are more "local". I have lived in Mexico and speak some Spanish(I love Mexico!). I'm of partial Greek heritage and that is the origin of my name(mat-tha-yos). My passions include: surfing, yoga, qi gong, tai chi, meditation, soccer(viewing), music, movies, sushi, writing, and meeting people. I am a very social person, but I can also just lay low and enjoy time alone(no need to entertain). A big part of my life right now is overcoming a chronic illness(nothing infectious) that I've spent the better part of the past 6 years seeking treatment. Although being ill has certainly slowed me down, I'm still trying to live life the best I can and help spread compassion for others in similar situations. My life has followed a pretty random path since graduating business school years ago and I have great stories! I live a generally wellness oriented lifestyle, but not too rigid in my thinking. I am a non-drinker(b/c of illness), but have no qualms being around alcohol or others social drinking. I'm a non-smoker and appreciate non-smoking environments. I love kids and people of all ages. I've also managed shared living houses for over 10 years, so I am very experienced with house rules and respecting living space(wash dishes, quiet time, etc..) FYI(in case of confusion on my name) My legal name is: Matthew R. Janis, but I've gone by the alias: Matthaios Tzanis for about 7 years now(my original family name)...just haven't gotten paper work done for official switch:) Thanks for reading my profile:)

peace:)
