About me: I came to Portland seven years ago with the intention to only stay for two! This town continues to amaze me as it grows and changes with folks coming from around the country and the world. They've brought incredible food, entrepreneurship and creativity to each neighborhood of Portland. As an avid bike commuter who has lived in several areas in Portland, I am always checking out new businesses that are slightly off the beaten path. I enjoy international travel and all the cultures you can discover right here in Portland. I have also been on countless hiking, swimming and camping adventures, which I think sealed the deal for my love affair with this place. From happy hours to hiking, I'll set you up with an incredible trip!
