Travel. Discovering new places, meeting new people, checking-out new cultures. I prefer developing countries (the Dollar goes farther meaning I can stay longer, plus it makes me feel more adventurous), but I’ve also backpacked through Europe.
Oregon. I love living in Oregon, and am proud to be a fifth generation Oregonian. Oregon summers are the best.
Politics. I’m active in Oregon’s political scene, and am an advocate for environmental awareness (including renewable energy). I grew up in an open-minded house, in a community full of people with diverse backgrounds, so I think it’s important to respect opinions and outlooks that are different than my own.
Portland. I live in NE, am partial to the local brews and spirits, have a small vegetable garden in my backyard that I water when I remember to, use Car2Go to get around, root for the Timbers and Blazers, and prefer to support the local business owners when I can.
Things I like:
Photography, Oregon wine, house parties & BBQ’s (pretty much any opportunity to get together with friends), NPR/OPB, honesty, good food, being social, camping, hiking, crabbing etc.
Me in one word: easygoing
