Profile Information

Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
Moving from Virginia
About Me:
25, Musician by love, carpet installer by trade. I am relocating with my fiance, our two children of 1.5 and 7, and our Mother.
What do you love about Portland?
The potential to not only become, but exist as the people we so naturally feel we are meant to be. Also, the nature.
My music:
I enjoy listening to a wide variety of tunes from slavery era blues to 90's grunge to current "synth driven pop," influenced by the 70's and 80's. My personal work can be recognized as having such influences, however my latest project (which predictably lost its supporting cast prematurely) is a bit more condensed in terms of inspiration, however I am proud of it. A few songs can be heard at facebook.com/gorgeousyounglady. I was the songwriter/guitarist/vocalist.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
Well, I think it's Hawthorne. I'm sure there are dozens of neighborhoods I have yet to discover through my research, but Hawthorne seems to fit the bill. Alberta seems even better, but perhaps a bit too pricey for my budget.
Favorite quote:
"The greatest tool at one's disposal is the mind. However misused and often wasted, it is the key to creation and therefore the key to life."

However, our visit trip is booked, and the move is all but tattooed onto our knuckles. We arrive Wednesday, August 28th and will be staying through the 2nd of September; a Monday, to discover the city and find a home. From the "extensive" research I have done, I have targeted a few ideal neighborhoods. These neighborhoods seem to be the obvious targets of most native…
