I've lived in Portland for a long time and know the city and region well. I'm an easy-going guy with some world travel under my belt. I'm into natural and sustainable living, culture, and Oregon's countryside and wilderness.

In my shared home, while giving you plenty of space, I am friendly and conversant, and happy to guide you to whatever sightseeing or experience you may be in the mood for.

If you are vegetarian, vegan or just curious about or enjoy plant-based cuisine, I have been vegan for longer than I can count and am tuned into the plethora of vegan/plant based shops, restaurants, bars and activities in town and can give you some ideas of where to grab that kind of grub to your heart's delight.
