Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
I have worked for the restaurant, newspaper and cycling shop industries. I have taken part in just about every sport there is. I was born in Salt Lake City and have lived in every state on the west coast. I consider Portland to be my real home.
What do you love about Portland?
I moved here in 1993 at the age I learned here, among many other things, that coffee, beer and Asian food have many different tastes. I started racing at PIR, Ski Bowl and in my first cyclocross races in 1994. I have been on over a dozen MMRs. I saw shows at La Luna and Pink Martini in their first year. This city has just about everything and some of the best offerings in the U.S. of A.
Depeche Mode, New Order, Pink Martini, Beastie Boys, Steel Pulse, Dubstep, Fat Boy Slim, DJ Z-Trip, Ozomatli, Hot Buttered Rum, Death Cab for Cutie. Almost anything but country or western.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
NE... Alberta and Woodlawn have both been emerging.

As people run, walk, or simply stand in a series of concentric circles we create a moving mandala. By dancing to the steady heartbeat of the drums, we become one collective body, and each…See More
