I am a Portland area native, a somewhat recent move-back-home-from-the-San Francisco-Bay Area with my kids; a creative; passionate about real estate, with a heart for people and what’s important to them. I’ve loved nurturing relationships professionally and being fiercely of service since 2008 when I stumbled into a sales role at a friend’s startup in San Francisco which led to a flourishing and finessing of how I might best bring my individual strengths to others. Working with people, bringing my experience and guiding them in the market really makes my day.


I’m interested in living big, surrounded by good people, art and beauty and collecting adventures: like nesting, traveling, writing satirical fiction, experiencing all kinds of music, and painting. I live for a good road trip or any travel, really, especially when there might be camping or scuba diving involved. I adore family and kids, and what gives me the most pleasure is solving a challenge for someone, being a partner in achieving a dream; doing what it takes to make it happen.
My background and education is in Art/Design and Languages; studying and living abroad and doing my best to make the world and my environment as colorful and exciting as possible was and still is the goal. Some things about me that may surprise: I skateboard and worked at Thrasher Magazine in the 90s, as well as working for Martha Stewart in the Hamptons. Ask me anything.
