I am new to Portland. I took off work for a year in 2012 and had the best year of my life. Spent a couple of months in Vail Colorado, then hiked 1,300 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. Loved every minute of it! I think anybody who knows me would say that I possess a certain ability to make people feel comfortable in my presence. I work very hard at everything I do, but am not a type A personality. I almost never have a beard....but all of my most current pictures are bearded, so yeah.
