I'm from New York but I live in Philadelphia now, I sell gemstones, minerals and wholesale jewelry for a living. My sister Sami is a musician and a music teacher and she's been in Portland for 4 years now. Her, our Mom and I have a very close relationship but due to the distance we only get to see each other about twice a year now. These trips are always a very special time for us and i can't wait. My mom's staying not far from there either so this is really somewhat of a dream spot for me.
