I am an active upbeat person who has lived in Portland for 16 years. Whenever I travel, some of the best times I have had, is when I can stay with the locals. It's always relaxed and informative and i come away with a flavor for the place much richer than had I been a hovering tourist. So I a happy to share my home and neighborhood, as well as my love for Portland with travelers.
I love my home and am always working to make it more comfortable and beautiful . I am a reader, a lover of music (so much good music here in PDX) , and an active outdoors person (hiking and biking). I am a cook and healthy eater, so having a good kitchen is important to me, as is trying many of the great restaurants we have here. From March to October our garden is a bounty of fresh organic vegetables and fruit.
For work , I am a self employed acupuncturist and own a clinic in northwest Portland.
My dog Louie,(3) and cat, Shadow Mae(16) both love people and will do their best to show you a comfortable stay as well.
