About Me
Portland has been my home for over 30 years. I moved here from Seattle to attend Reed College, and after graduation I did brief stints on the East Coast and Bay Area before returning for good. In my spare time I like to cook, hike, hang out with dogs and friends, putter at home and in garden.

This apartment was excellent.

I moved to Portland from out of state on a one-year contract and didn't want to deal with buying furniture or doing any kind of homesteading. The space Regan provided was beautiful. It had everything I needed to feel comfortable immediately.

Even though it is a basement apartment there is ample natural light. When I worked from home, I rarely had to turn on the lights, even in the Portland rain.

As someone who loves to cook, I had some reservations about the kitchen before I moved in. These were unfounded. I was able to cook just as much as I always have.

I really loved the neighborhood. There's a great farmer's market and a neat commercial district less than a ten minute walk from the apartment. I walked to the grocery store and a fair amount of entertainment as well. The apartment is also less than a mile away from Mt. Tabor Park, one of Portland's best parks (and, depending on whom you ask, either an extinct or dormant volcano!) If that's too far, the backyard is great, too.

Regan was also a great neighbor. Chatting with her could brighten my day. She was super helpful for me getting to know the neighborhood and Portland in general. She was really attentive and often asked if I had any problems--I didn't have any issues with the apartment in my year there. She was always outside beautifying the front yard or the back garden, which made the backyard such a great place to hang out when the weather was nice.

If my contract had been renewed, I'd still be living in this apartment.
