We're from Portland, Oregon. I direct and perform with a dance company called POV Dance ((website hidden)). Other than working as a poorly paid dancer/choreographer, I manage finances for an alternative school. My years as a dancer are drawing to a close as I move further into my 40s and I'm looking forward to a little more sustainable farming and potentially a career change that will take me away from a computer and allow me to work more with dirt and fresh air. Patrick is a filmmaker and multimedia designer ((website hidden)). He's totally on board with me on farming and we may end up out in the country before too long....as long as we stay close enough to Portland to remain part of the arts and design community we so love.
There are so many things to love about Portland and the food and beer are two of our favorite qualities of this place. Another is the general craftsmanship in all things Portland. There is so much love, detail and perfection applied to everything here, from farmed organic vegetables and pasture-raised meats to the design of furniture, clothing and interiors. We're proud to live here and call this place our home.
