Lives In Willard Beach, SoPo

I have lived in Portland for 30 years, through many experiences.  I am a charity auctioneer, singer/songwriter, business owner, health and wellness professional, and general all-round explorer. Portland is my favorite place to come home to.  I love the creative vibe, community fabric, variety of things to do, nature, and (of course) the food scene.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Summer: Ferry to Peaks and bike rentals, beaches, outdoor music Winter: Cross country ski, snow shoe hikes, explore downtown happenings, make group dinners, play music

What's the most surprising thing about this city? How much there is to experience in a condensed area.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Soakology with foot rub, especially in the cooler weather.

Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland. Dinner with friends, exploring new food and drink options, live music and dancing, followed by a lazy morning with brunch at Local 188.
