I’m originally a transplant from the east coast, having moved to Portland in 1979, so I’ve seen real transformation in the area. As well for me over the years, with graduate school and into the legal world, as a small business owner and now realtor and arts administrator. I’ve also had the adventure of raising a family of three girls, who are in their twenties and live in Brooklyn and Chicago, and who love to be from Portland.
We’re travelers from way back, having first ventured solo to Europe in my teens, and then traveling with daughters, and again most recently to SE Asia. I had the good fortune to meet amazing folks doing considerable work in Cambodia, and I returned to work with their NGO for some seriously deep and wide experiences.
I also take photos wherever I am, spend renewing time in my garden, and am lucky to sometimes enjoy most a sunset view from my back deck. I’m happy to share, and look forward to meeting you here, or on the road.
