Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
I'm a father to two beautiful, energetic, and ever-curious girls. I also own and operate a business called Eco-Plumber, through which I endeavor to bring mindfulness, sustainability, and integrity to the skilled trades, and into the homes and small businesses of Portland.
What do you love about Portland?
The subculture. The grassroots feel. The openness to change, (r)evolution, and the betterment of the species. The eclectic and multi-faceted music scene. The art appreciation. The trees. The mountains. The sense of community.
Whatever roots in (or rocks) my mood of the moment.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
Probably the Alberta St. scene, for it's edge and it's intentionally non-glamorous love affair with all things art, music, and creative living, but I find the most comfort in the blue-collar urban simplicity of Lower SE Division and Clinton.

I have serious basement flooding and have been getting quotes from waterproofing companies for sub-pumps and such, and what I really want is a french drain/dry well/rain barrel system to divert and re-use the water. Glad you're open for business :-)
