An upstate New York native transplanted to Portland, OR on a temporary work assignment in ... New York. I have an undergraduate degree in psychology, but I'm a software engineer by day in the green energy industry. I spend my free time exploring outdoors or growing lots of food in little space. I aspire to travel the world and displace myself in foreign cultures. I appreciate good food and good coffee, but I'm not snobby about it.
I like the personal experience of staying in personal spaces, of experiencing little chunks of life in a way that you can't get from a hotel.
I spent three days in Iceland last fall. If I could afford to, I'd spend three months in Iceland, exploring the volcanoes and small towns and glacial lakes.
