I am a youthful 45 year old guy from Philadelphia who moved to the Portland area in 1996 to enjoy the high quality of life out here. I love the outdoors and progressive minded people. The pacific northwest is my kind of place. Some of my interests....
Yoga..I am a teacher for the last 13 years.
Massage....I am a LMT for the last 12 years.
Capoeira.... I practice in southeast (website hidden) and dining.... I love to cook and create new things.
Travel…Mostly the western hemisphere but planning on going to the far east.
Hiking, Biking, Backpacking...I love the mountains, rivers and any amazing geographic uniqueness.
Hot Springs.. I am a hot spring junkie.
I do a variety of activity things for fun and to stay in shape....such as running, tennis, basketball, skiing, snowshoeing, frisbee football, disc golf, softball, and swimming and anything else that looks like a fun way to be active.
Socializing with friends and good people. I do well socially and enjoy interacting and learning about people.
The human mind....I have a degree in Economics which is often thought of as a "business" body of knowledge, however it is a social and behavioral science and has many elements of psychology and sociology and those are the aspects of it that interest me. Politics are also of interest to me because of my back ground with economics.
My Philosophy....Move toward balance. Go with the flow when you need to and make stuff happen when it presents itself. I like learning from people who teach by example. Be the change you would like to see in the world.
My thoughts on Airbnb....
I was happy to find out about Airbnb because I am part of the (website hidden) community and find that I really appreciate the personal connection to the people and places where I spend time. I think it is such a great idea to travel this way.
