I live in Portland, Oregon, where I own a small 1920s Craftsman style home. I spend a lot of time on home and garden projects, and love home and garden design.
I work in sustainability, helping businesses improve recycling, composting, and efficiencies in energy, water, and transportation.
I love to visit new places and find local restaurants, cafes, markets and coffee shops. And I love getting recommendations from people who live in the place I'm visiting!
I also enjoy exploring neighborhoods, looking at architecture and gardens, parks and hiking, art museums, etc.
I spent a year in Italy, studying art history and volunteering on organic farms. I have been fortunate to travel to Hong Kong, Japan, many wonderful cities in Western Europe.
I'm very excited to be traveling to Scandinavia this summer with my boyfriend Jack - I really enjoyed my past travels to Stockholm and Copenhagen, and look forward to spending more time there and seeing new places!
My parents have an airbnb apartment here in Portland and have really enjoyed meeting people from all over the world, and giving advice about all the things to do and see here in Portland.
