From Seattle and now in Portland--I've spent time in California and Virginia but always find the Pacific Northwest to be my true home. I have traveled a fair amount both within and without the united states and love exploring new places. I am both a plant nerd and a food enthusiast, so my main passions are (fittingly) growing/cooking food, and getting out into the natural wilds of the northwest. I can shed humility to agree that I am really funny. As a houseguest I can be shy at first but overall am very delightful. Favorite book: Sometimes a Great Notion; favorite movie: Royal Tenenbaums; listening to: Orchestra Baobab, Belle and Sebastian.
