Lives In East End

I'm originally from the east coast but I spent eight years in Colorado and one in Los Angeles. I just moved back east and decided Portland was a really cool community to live in. I love how creative and outdoorsy Portland is. I love yoga, photography, working on my jewelry in my studio, playing with my french bulldog and going to concerts. I also love last minute adventures and traveling.

Why did you choose Portland? Because of the creative culture and small community

What's the most surprising thing about this city? How good the food is and how well traveled people are

Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland. Seeing live music and hanging with friends in my back yard. In the morning I like going to hilltop coffee shop, working in my studio and going to yoga.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Hilltop Superette or Hilltop Coffee shop
