I'm an Oregonian, born, raised and currently working in the Portland metro area. My entire life has been in here, apart from three school years down in Eugene at the University of Oregon and one summer spent "studying" in Perugia, Italy. My wife and I are currently owned by one very demanding Shiba (Misaki, pictured above - more about her on her tab) and two demanding (but less judgmental) Bengal cats (Moochie and Lilo).
This blog is dedicated to all of our favorite things: our pets, Portland food and drink, hiking Oregon's many natural wonders, the writing of words themselves for a someday-hopefully-published book, and anything else that comes up along the way. My hope is that it's at minimum entertaining and perhaps even a bit helpful.
