ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I am living life like the adventure it is.

I like doing things of significance that help people and improve the world. I like to pick things that are important and worth doing, not just things that are easy, and make them happen. And I like to have fun in the process!

I started taking college courses at Portland Community College at age 14, I earned a bachelors degree in finance from Portland state at age 20. I started a hedge fund straight out of college, did well, and then shut that down to start a company that will produce ultra-clean diesel and jet fuel from sustainable biomass.

I am very independent, both in my thinking and my actions.

I'm an eagle scout. I LOVE the outdoors and cooking. I go whitewater kayaking, hiking, camping, mountain biking, and have a bunch of other things I would love to try that I just haven't gotten to yet. I cant wait to get another motorcycle. I'm planning to run the Baja 1000 with a few friends in a couple years.

Things I am passionate about?
My family (I have a beautiful precocious 4 year old daughter). Sustainability. Business. The environment. Helping make the world a better place. Free Will. Enjoying the outdoors.

Philosophy?
I like my toys and a degree of security, but I am not a "he who dies with the most toys wins" sort of person. I have become comfortable with the reality that security is largely a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

I have always taken an unconventional and adventurous path, whether is was skipping highschool and going straight to college. Starting my own business straight out of college. Or shutting that successful business down to take on a new and truly mammoth opportunity.

I decided early on, before I graduated, that I did not just want to use my talents to make as much money as possible and end up with a dysfunctional family life. I wanted to use what i've got to make the world better, to help people, and to help myself and my family in the process. "Do well by doing good".

There is a lot in this world that profoundly challenges the thin veneer of safety that society has built it's expectations upon, and I aim to try and address those problems. So I guess I also like to "go big and follow my dreams".

My social life is a mix. One day I am camping with my friends on a kayaking trip, and the next I am boarding a plane to London for a key industry conference, or hosting a formal dinner. One part high society, one part getting dirty and having fun in nature. I am comfortable in both. Are you?

I enjoy going out, but not every night. I prefer a cool bar to a loud nightclub, but I can have a good time in both. I love to cook and entertain.


What am I looking for in a relationship?
Someone who knows who they are. Somebody amazing. Primarily a Partner I suppose. Somebody who I can share the experience of life with, who compliments me, who acts with ethics and integrity, and is not just looking to live the high life, but also understands that there is dues-paying required to get there. I don't have preconceived notions about who this person is. I walk a pretty unusual path, so I am certainly not looking for a mirror-image. A degree of athleticism, self-motivation, work ethic, and decent living habits are a must. No hard drugs, psychiatric meds, or seriously broken family backgrounds please. People who enjoy outdoor adventures are a serious plus. And just up-front: The motorcycle is non-negotiable ;-). I'm a low-drama person in my personal life, by choice.

For fun:

Favorite things:

I absolutely love trying new things. Picking a cusine I have never cooked before and trying it. (Uwajimaya is like a candy-store). Music-wise, I like electronic, industrial, and rock primarily, but will try anything.
