I'm originally from Nebraska and lived in Michigan prior to moving to Portland. I work a lot and consequently enjoy my time off to its maximum. I love this city and don't see myself going anywhere any time soon. I try to keep things calm but I enjoy the world the most when I have to think on my feet. I strive for intelligence but have a long way to go before I'll feel comfortable. Maybe for that reason, I appreciate humor and lightheartedness to keep me level.
I like music, film, visual art, and poetry--namely The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Yo La Tengo, John Krakauer, The Coen Brothers, Bill Withers, Neutral Milk Hotel, Animal Collective, William Boroughs, The Beach Boys (mostly just Pet Sounds), Allen Ginsberg, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Sonny Boy Williamson, David Shapiro, Strangers with Candy, The Pixies, Joy Division, David Bowie.
