I have lived in Portland for over 6 years (born and raised in East Tennessee). I am a civil engineer by profession. I love my job, as I get to travel, review flood maps, and work with GIS software a lot. I love biking in Portland, especially long bike rides with my lady friends when the sun is out. I also enjoy reading, when the internets do not distract me for too long during my free time. I am also married to a great man, that I hope to travel the whole world with during the rest of our lives. We are both in our mid 30's, fully employed, and very grateful to anyone who would open their home or space to me and/or us.
