Portland is the first place I've lived that I am in love with. I talk about it like it's my boyfriend. He's so creative, we have so much fun together, you should meet him.
I have swam with a 10' hammerhead, dove off cliffs in Israel, and gone hang gliding, but I love to sit on my porch with a tasty beverage and good company.
Raised Catholic, but I don't believe God is a white guy sitting on a cloud. I go to church to get perspective on my life and reconnect with the love-thy-neighbor attitude. Being outdoors is the most spiritual experience for me.
I like odd facts such as there is enough water in Lake Superior to cover North and South America in a foot of water. I like hearing about what you know that I don't and sharing what I know.
Some days my favorite moment is when I first step outside and feel the morning breeze.
Parties are fun, but my favorite time is a good conversation and laughs with a few people, and occasionally, I want time alone.
I have a degree in biology and another in art. I enjoy using both sides of my brain.
I like to play visual chess. You point out something beautiful in view such as the color scheme or how a shadow falls across the surface of another object. Then the other person points out something intriguing. You go back and forth until someone points out the most sublime detail in view and you both agree that's a checkmate. Then, you quietly soak in the sublime detail.
