I moved to Portland from England 16 years ago and immediately felt right at home. I am an avid cross-country skier, hiker and biker. I am an outdoor enthusiast and like to take care to preserve the environment. I am a member of many well-established hiking and mountain climbing groups.
I have lived in many countries around the world and experienced different cultures. I take great pleasure and joy in having visitors in my home. I love to share with my guests my love and knowledge of the outdoors, whether it is best hiking trails, or suburban biking trails.
We are really fortunate here in Portland to have a wonderful selection of hiking trails close to the city. In Spring, the trails are awash with a variety of beautiful spring wildflowers.
I love to visit local farmer's markets - we have many wonderful neighborhood markets here in Portland with an amazing variety of seasonal, local produce. I enjoy cooking and preparing tasty and healthy dishes using this wonderful local produce.
I am happy to prepare a meal for you and if you have any particular dietary requirements I can come up with some options.
