I grew up in the Michigan wilderness on Lake Michigan. Because of that, I have a deep appreciation for the outdoors. Camping, hiking, disc golf, sledding, biking, whatever - Any reason to get outside is awesome.
I love the rainy days in Portland too - I tend to always have at least four or five books that I'm currently reading, and will often impulse buy a new one as soon as it's suggested.
Moving out to Portland has sort of been a life-long goal of mine. Last year I was able to move out here for a job, and I've never looked back.
I am constantly learning and trying new things.
