I came to Portland for graduate school almost two decades ago and quickly fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, running, baking, travel, and spending time with friends and family. I also have eclectic tastes in music, movies, sci-fi/fantasy, and various board/card games.
