I live in Portland, Oregon. Tending to my community garden plot keeps me busy as I foolishly try to grow tomatoes in the Pacific NW. When not working in the financial services industry, I enjoy hanging out with friends and trying new food, microbrews and sake. I like to cook, especially with food grown from my own garden. Biking and hiking in the Portland area during the summer is also amazing. My funnest job was working the "crush" in Oregon wine country one fall making mostly Pinot Noir.
