East coast born with a west coast soul. I moved to Portland, OR in the summer of 2010 with my wife Caitlin. We have been loving it in our new home and we are excited to explore more of what the west coast has to offer. I am pretty low-key, equal parts social butterfly and lone wolf. I have travelled to Europe a few times and my most desired destination is New Zealand.
I love to play games (video games, board games, crosswords, et al), different genres of instrumental music are my jam, and I love food too much. In fact, I'm typically think about my options for the next meal while I'm eating the current meal. I usually jump past small talk into deep topics, so I apologize ahead of time if I ask if you've considered when you look at stars in the night sky, or even light from the sun, that you are technically looking into the past.
My preferred travel style is to have a good home base while I am able to explore. I'm an introvert so I recharge by making my own energy, but I am making more of an effort to be gregarious. A quiet neighborhood is key for me. I work in a high-velocity, busy environment so I vacation for a bit of peace rather than too much adventure.
