I am an artistic/creative working professional with multiple jobs.
I am told that I'm a great cook, and love to cook and share meals with friends...as I cook most meals at home, it is probable that I will prepare at least one (tasty!) meal for you during your stay.
In my younger years, I traveled all over the globe. I still love to travel - these days, a little closer to home. One of my favorite destinations every year is the Burning Man Arts Festival, in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.
Before I completed my MBA almost a year ago, I read often and for pleasure. I am a huge fan of Tolkein and Gabriel Garcia Marquez - if you stay here, you are welcome to peruse my formidable collection of favorite books (most of which I've read at least once)!
I am both social and somewhat of a hermit. I have a wide circle of dynamic and interesting friends with whom I love to spend time cooking together, going out to potlucks, barbeques, live music, dancing, camping...Some afternoons and evenings are spent working, some with friends, most with a combination of both. I spend a fair amount of time at home, some of which is spent working, and more often, is spent chilling out. I have become hooked on Game of Thrones!
Additionally, I used to be a tour director, so time spent in Portland and staying in my home could turn into all sorts of adventures, depending on your plans!
