What do you like about Portland?
I like that it’s a small urban city, but with a lot of variety. I appreciate that it’s quiet, clean, and surrounded in nature all while having a good variety in food and high economic growth.
What are your hobbies?
My biggest hobby growing up would probably be skateboarding. I also enjoy tennis and golf.
What interests you?
Investment research, particularly in real estate and stocks. The psychology in capital markets is also very fascinating to me.
Where else have you lived?
Although I grew up in Portland, I have three nationalities – Japan, US, and Canada. Half of my extended family lives in Japan, so I find Tokyo to be like a second home. I spent most of my summers there until I was 16, and then I went again when I was 19 and lived there for a year. Tokyo is a very fun place.
What do you like about your work?
First of all I get to work with good people at Sean Z Becker Real Estate in the beautiful area, South Waterfront. Secondly, real estate is tangible, and seeing the prices fluctuate based on the market’s anticipations is super interesting to me. I’m a curious person, so it’s a good fit too.
