UPDATE (9/24/17): Currently dating an amazing woman. Still interested in creating a platform for others to find the love of their lives. Stay tuned and sign up on mailing list below!
Orientation: Homosexual, sapiosexual, monogamous, lady-loving-lady, super lesbian, some would say soft butch.
Body Type: A little extra around the edges, but active.
Diet: Omnivore, but I enjoy a good vegan or gluten-free meal.
Drugs: No. Have you seen "Locked Up Abroad"?!
Smokes: Not really. Maybe a cigar once in a blue moon.
Drinks: Socially. I like whiskey, cider, red wine and non-hoppy beer.
Religion: Roman Catholic. And yeah, I like Jesus (though I drink a little)
Sign: Pisces (I was told this is important with lesbians)
Job: Technology / Internet Startup (kinda)
Offspring: None. Open to the possibility of procreation, though at my age, I would not be the bearer of a tiny human.
Speaks: English (Fluently), Spanish (enough to get me in trouble) and I know how to say "please" and "thank you" in probably ten other languages.
I have spent a considerable amount of time over the past few years working on me and becoming the best version of myself. I am ready to be in a relationship with an equally amazing woman who has done the work and has their sh** together.
I currently work for a tech company in Portland, OR. Previously, I spent 14 years working as an Emergency Department Technician and a Medical Assistant. I realized working in healthcare was destroying my soul, so I took a risk and left my comfort zone to work in tech. I do not regret it for a moment.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking and backpacking. I have walked the Camino de Santiago twice (Camino Frances and Camino Portuguese). I rode a 1980 P200 Vespa motorscooter across the United States once. I have a love affair with Nepal. I love to dogsit and have a lot of photos of other people's pups.
Locally, in Portland, I enjoy exploring coffee shops, food carts, seeing live music, and hanging out with friends.
I am willing to relocate for the right person. Or, if you want to join me in Portland (or the PNW really), that's cool too. Right now, I am interested in getting to know someone and if that's intially via a long distance relationship, that's okay!
My ultimate dream is to live overseas.
Well, this is certainly a loaded question. Here are a few things I am looking for. This list is a starting point. And somewhat generalized.
Intrigued? Interested in learning more? Hit me up via this contact form and let's see what happens!
I have some trips planned in the coming months. If you live in one of these places, maybe we can grab coffee or a drink.
I am going to be in NYC for a hot minute to attend the Lesbians Who Tech (and allies) Summit. You can find out more details below.
(update 7/30/2017) I bought my conference tickets. I will be attending the conference and the racial justice workshop. I will have time to meet for dinner or maybe coffee. Girl and the Goat anyone?
