Laid back and witty, I prefer to make sure that people can comfortably take care of themselves. I love Portland, chocolate, beer, and a variety of artsy-craftsy stuff ranging from pen & ink drawing to photography to sewing. When I travel, I like to really experience an area for what it is. Tourist attractions are okay, but I'd rather hang out in a cafe and people watch.
My favorite Portland restaurants are the Screen Door, the Firehouse, and Andina (I used to work there!). I also love my neighborhood joints: Breakside Brewery, Woodlawn Coffee & Pastry, and Good Neighbor Pizza.
I'm generally relaxed, though I also work and attend grad school. My husband also works full-time, so while we'll be around, you won't see too much of us during the week.
