Looking Back

Saying Goodbye to Portland – I’ve had so many highs and lows over the last 30 years in the City of Portland.

You Matter To Me.

I often write of friendships. Those relationships I’ve built, curated, nurtured, celebrated, and loved (and lost) over the many years of my life are all a part of who I am today. Who I’ve become, how I’ve grown, and how I view the world. But, the truth is, I wouldn’t be who I am in…
