I'm a writer and designer, originally from California, grew up in Colorado, and worked as a Peace Corps volunteer in Tanzania and a high school teacher in New York City before coming to Portland nine years ago.

My girlfriend Melea and I live here in Portland, Oregon, with our baby boy, Isador, who just arrived last spring. Both of us are originally from the west coast (she's from Seattle) but have spent a lot of time in different parts the country, and around the world -- for school (Pennsylvania, San Diego, Scotland, New York City) and for work (India, Kenya, England, Singapore). We've also traveled a lot in Asia and Latin America, separately and together -- and still agree that Portland is our favorite city overall.

At the moment, we're pretty tied to home, raising our son and working on the house and garden. As travelers, we're looking forward to exploring as a trio rather than a pair; as hosts, we're excited to introduce folks to this wonderful part of the world.
