I, Connie, am from Portland. I was an urban planner and project manager for Portland's development agency, helping develop housing near transit stations. I love to bike, kayak, do yoga, cook and explore cities. I travel a lot and have used Air Bnb to find cozy lodging in Amsterdam, Barcelona, England, Port Townsend, and throughout Ireland. I always appreciated the personal connection with the hosts, who helped me get oriented and taught me about their cities. I'd like to pass on some of that good kharma to visitors in Portland.
