Profile Information

Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
None yet, but looking forward to it--I'm going to shoot for an affordable and attractive one, though.
About Me:
I'm into music, film, acting, linguistics, history, books, and learning in general. I'm into many things usually considered "nerdy," but you won't find me at a lot of conventions and certainly not running around in everyday life dressed as some wizard or alien from a book/movie I like. I'm not afraid to admit I like a lot of TV shows, largely because their quality on average is so much higher now than ten years ago--but I usually just rent these or watch on Hulu for time management purposes. In short, they're just a source for inspiration for me, especially where my own creative side is concerned. I'm a bit obsessed with Lost, Naruto, and Doctor Who, and each of those is probably my overall favorite for its respective home country at this point. I spent six years in NYC after living in DFW for the first twenty years of my life, but decided that city was a bit too cutthroat/uptight/expensive/overrated in general for me. I spent a week in Portland a few months ago and fell in love with it on the first day, and after nearly a year of saving up I got here just before New Year's.
What do you love about Portland?
People are disarmingly friendly and helpful, great air quality, nice music scene/venues, great public transport, nice parks, bookstores, easy to get around, and as far as I'm concerned, GREAT weather, if not flat-out IDEAL.
My music:
Electronic/Indie Pop/Indie Rock/Post-punk/80s UK pop/indie folk/other folk-related acts here and there.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
So far, Hawthorne, due to its clearly indie-oriented crowd...but to be fair, I dont' know the 'hoods here well at all.
