Lives In Oakdale

I love art, science, design, and the outdoors. I have traveled all over the country many times and have found Portland to be one of the best communities around. I make things. I was the first in my family to graduate college and have completed a Masters in Architecture. I love my family. I cry when I see others try when it's hard. I spell poorly, but I'm working on it. I am a Mainer.

Why did you choose Portland? I fell in love with Portland while driving around lost without a license; I was 15.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? Those who help their neighbors, of which there are too many to name.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? The amount of creative individuals.
