A long-time collector of treasure and maker of home, curating a comfortable and lovely place to lay my head, gather, entertain and create has always been a priority for me. Though I have lived in Portland, OR for 9 years and love it here, I am a bit of a nomad myself. I was raised in the Midwest , went to school on the East Coast and have lived in 6 different cities since. I own an antiques and curiosities shop in the Pearl district downtown and travel quite a lot for work and for pleasure. When away from home, as much as possible, I like to stay with family and friends, preferring the comforts of home to those of a hotel. I hope you will enjoy your stay in my house, my neighborhood and my city. Welcome!
