Why did you choose Portland? I moved here from Austin, Texas literally on a whim way back in the 80s. I've never regretted it.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? Anybody who turns their useless lawn into a wildlife-friendly space and/or vegetable garden.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Get outside and explore.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? The West End.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? In such a food-obsessed town, it always surprises me that there are so few dedicated vegetarian/vegan restaurants.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Socks from The Sock Shack.

What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? Congress Street. It has it all.

Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland. Dinner out with friends and a walk in Evergreen Cemetery with my partner Betsy and my dogs Truman Capote and Harper Lee.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Coffee By Design (Diamond St).
