Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
I grew up all over Portland. I graduated from David Douglas in '99. Since then I've lived on a farm in Scappose, spent a year in Eugene some time in NW and am moving back to the Beaverton area from Tucson, AZ in two weeks.
What do you love about Portland?
The rain, the diverse grouping of people. It's a magical place. Sometimes you have to leave home to realize that everything you ever loved and needed was waiting right where you left it.
I listen to everything. Seriously.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
I love Hawthorne. It's small and eclectic and overly trendy at the same time. I'm always looking for new loves though...

I'm a self-employed artist, and will be moving to Portland in the Fall. I'd like to live in a neighborhood where there are other creative folks, doing their thing. Other factors that are important to me in a neighborhood are a sense of community, proximity to parks and bike paths, and easy access to public transportation; someplace that has plenty of social gathering spots, such as cafes, pubs, little restaurants, etc. and activities available like yoga, dance, open-mike and music jams. Any…See More
