I'm a native of Canada and have lived in the US for 20 years, mostly in CA, and now 6 years in OR. My home is located in Portland's east side near the Hawthorne neighborhood . My job is in IT, as a database developer and I do contract work mostly here in Portland. I love to cook, and especially enjoy the outdoors, cycling and walking - camping! I have wide ranging interests and do plenty of yoga. Like to read especially poetry. Love travel and meeting people :-) I've lived in Spain, New Zealand, England for big chunks of my life, oh yeh, I'm 55!
As a guest I am quiet, respectful, and tidy. In the kitchen I clean as I go and leave things as I found them. In general I consider myself low impact in the ways that matter to a host. As a homeowner, I have a pretty good sense about what your home means to you too.
I normally enjoy conversation, but also respect other's space that way too. I look forward to meeting you! Best, Donald
