I love exploring every nook and cranny of Oregon and accumulating interesting regional facts and lore. I also love to travel, adventure, meet people and eat regional foods - the more authentic the better!
I have always wanted to run a travel lodge and my Airbnb home is a way to share my love of Portland with guests - to help them see the real Portland from a local's perspective. I am quiet and respectful; I will definitely stay out of your way - but I'm always reachable if you have questions or just want to chat over a glass of wine/bourbon/local craft beer.
I am a photographer and a freelance marketer focusing on telling brand stories, which means I get to spend a lot of time interviewing inspiring people, taking photos and writing. I am also the Founder and Festival Director of Filmed by Bike, a film festival featuring events and the best bike movies from around the world.
I love riding my bike, I helped found much of Portland's bike culture, and touring a region by bike is my favorite ways to explore, experience and sink in.
