I'm an easy-going, clean & professional home-owner who feels lucky to have such a great spot in which to live. For over ten years I've been sharing it with friends and family as they come visit, now I'm excited to share with others via Airbnb. The money earned goes right back into the condo for continual upgrades and modifications!
I'm a travel enthusiast, and have enjoyed trekking around our country and world for the past many years. I love good food & drink and enjoy the opportunities that dining provides to bring people into community with each other... whether I know them or not! Some of my favorite places include the Pearl district in NW Portland, any number of the food cart pods around the area, the Stage Deli in Manhattan, the Haupstrasse in Heidelburg, Germany, and 'Nando's Pizza in the little Tuscan village of Anghiari, Italy.
I grew up in the area, in the neighboring town of Lake Oswego. I was away for four years in college at Indiana University, and have since worked in the Portland metropolitan area. I know the area well, and always look forward to finding a new hike along the Gorge, a walk through one of the many eclectic Portland neighborhoods, or just sitting with a book on my balcony or sofa while looking out at Mt. Hood.
A bass player as well, I'm happy to make recommendations and provide sources for guests as to where they might go scavenging for good food, exploring the outdoors, or finding a good live concert of any music style.
I look forward to making more new friends through what Airbnb can help do!
