There is something so very accessible about Portland that charms and endears me. It feels intimate and easily navigable for a “big “city. The food culture, alternative activities, green space everywhere, walking and cycling is embraced and you are a short drive from the ocean, mountains, rivers and forests.
What are you doing in your free time?
You can usually find me artfully dodging or skillfully kicking rubber balls in my adult Dodgeball and Kickball leagues. I try and keep youthful at heart and these leagues help with that. Otherwise, I can be found hiking and exploring the Pacific Northwest with my wife Chelsea and my daughter Elora.
Favorite Place Traveled To?
This is probably a tie between Mürren, Switzerland in the Swiss Alps where I proposed to my wife or Cambodia where I traveled with my brother and sister and explored the ruins of the Khmer Empire all over the country. Each were places I had to keep reminding myself that they actually existed when I woke up every morning.
What can always be found close to you?
A cup of coffee and my computer.
Why Real Estate?
I have always loved the feeling of home. It is both a sense of place and a feeling of comfort. I find immense enjoyment in being able to help people find their home, whether that is handing over the keys to that very first home purchase, or helping someone take the next steps in life by selling the place that memories were made in. Not many careers can give that sense of satisfaction at the end of the day.
