I lived in Chicago for 37years then fell in love with Portland after a bicycle camping trip in 1997. In spring 1999. I arrived with a car full of stuff and (2) cats. I've been here since, minus a (2) yr stint in LA. I'm single, 50yrs old with great friendships but I appraciate quiet time to think/read/wander. I'm a business manager for a non-profit (NARA.) I swim, kayak, walk and sing in a choir. I enjoy exploring, movies and good meals. I'm pretty laid-back... thoughtful and honest. I now live with (3) great roommates, (3) dogs, (3) cats and a pond of fish.
