Profile Information

Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
South Waterfront
About Me:
I am a focused and fun person. I enjoy challenging myself in many areas from improving skills, to trying new ideas, to exploring different avenues of business so I can always be moving forward instead of standing still.
I love being active, so snowboarding in the winter and wake boarding in the summer along with my new love for racquetball.
My best evenings are sipping wine and laughing with my closest friends.
What do you love about Portland?
All of the amazing choices for food and drinks.
Portland is a forward thinking city with great ideas and I am happy to be apart of it.
Summer! When we have it.
The ability to drive two hours and be at the mountains or at the beach!
Walkability of Portland.
Great music venues around town.
My music:
Dance all the way. I enjoy all types but you can't be sad on Dance music and it is the best for working out.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
I like them all for different reasons. Big fan of NE style homes and quaint neighborhoods

Hi, it's me from S. California! Dis you have a nice holiday? I got to see my dad, and that made mine. There was a lot going on and I just didn't have the time to get to the computer. Hope you will uunderstand. Maybe when we can get up there we could meet each other//

Thank you so much for the message! It's sounding better and better all the time :-) Does it often snow in winter or is this just unusually cold? I was hoping to live somewhere where it would snow, just not bury me LOL. :-)

Wow, I already feel welcome. I stumbled on this site and became a member so I wouldn't lose track of it; it seems quite helpful. I'm not relocating til next fall, and wasn't going to inquire about accomodations until a little later, but I certainly don't mind getting a head start on things. I am not too particular as far as amenities are concerned, but would like to live as close to the heart of the city as possible. However, financial and career concerns may limit my ideal location. As appealing as biking and public transportation sounds, I will probably be dependent on my personal vehicle. This is due to the probability of working outside of the city and living thus far in the Midwest, where a personal vehicle is the norm. I have only visited Portland a several occasions, but loved it each time. As I previously mentioned, I grew up in the Midwest and feel it is time for a change. If you have any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to making new friends and experiencing all that Portland has to offer.

Sorry it took so long to respond. I'm originally from Sothern/Central California been here a few years now and finally getting my footing. I love the late summer/fall here. The first year was all school and no play it took almost a year after graduation to find a good job. Now I am starting to make friends and explore a little.

Hey Rene,
My brother and I have just been staying in a couple different motels, but we're working on finding a place so as not to burn up all of our funds on motels. And it will be nice to unload all of the stuff out of my truck, its getting quite cramped in there. But no worries, we'll find a place soon, hopefully. Any advice?

Hey Renee its Andy, remember me?! I finally made it here last night. I'm looking for a place to stay right now. But yeah I made it! Maybe i'll run into you sometime.

I do so want to get out of Southern California. My husband also wants to leave. We haven't bee in Oregon yet. Tell me what is the min wage there for an office support clerk and a warehouseman?

Well - I am focusing mainly on the Alberta Arts District, but I basically want to be relatively close to the MAX, in a nice neighborhood that is kinda artsy. I would love to find a live/work space, but not in the sense that I have seen advertised. (I don't think I would like being squeezed into that small a space:)

I would love to find a house with a studio in the back yard.
