Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
About Me:
I am a Loan Officer with Sound Mortgage, and loving it. I am a professional actor, singer and director. I am currently working on two projects, directing Into the Woods at Lakewood Center for the Performing Arts, and then acting as Freddie in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at Broadway Rose Theatre Company. I am engaged to a Southern Belle. I am working hard to create and maintain a balanced life. I love camping, hiking, going to the coast. I am only competitive when it comes to sports, and then. . . watch out. I am an educator having taught theatre arts for 8 years. But most importantly, I am a life-long student. If I am not learning, I am completely and utterly bored.
What do you love about Portland?
What is not to love. To me, Portland is in perfect balance in so many ways. Where else can you enjoy a formal outing to a fine dining restaurant or art event and then turn around and enjoy the rich, bohemian culture. It is a small town in a big city. . . or is that a big city in a small town? It is an hour from the majesty of the pacific ocean and the awe inspiring mount hood. One can participate in the hustle of downtown and them moments later escape to the solitude of Forest Park.
My music:
I have a degree in music composition from U of O, so I am a connoisseur of many genres of music. I can find music very distracting because I listen so intently. Having said that, I am partial to classical composers such as Debussy, Ravel, Satie, Beethoven; musical theatre, particularly Sondheim and Jason Robert Brown, 70's rock (can't beat it) and I love experimental music.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
I absolutely LOVE Hawthorne, with Mississippi and Alberta Arts a close 2nd and 3rd.
Favorite quote:
I am going to cheat and have three:-p

"Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt." ~Shakespeare

"Every child is born an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." ~Picasso

"If you go flying back through time, and you see somebody else flying forward into the future, it's probably best to avoid eye contact." ~ Jack Handy
