I live in Portland, Oregon. I am involved in art, music, design, gardening and community development. I love cooking at home and dining out. I have a son and we both enjoy riding bikes. Due to my own chemical sensitivities I use only unscented products in my apartment and in the laundry room of the building. Natural products with plant based essential oils are OK too. Reading books is one of my favorite activities. I feel extremely lucky to live within bike, bus, train or urban hiking distance to almost anywhere in the city. My son and I are both learning Spanish and we enjoy meeting people and sharing some of the fun and quirky parts of our neighborhood in North Portland.
