I'm a Portland native, raised in the south, who has returned to my natural environment. In my free time, you'll find me exploring the wilds of Oregon, sampling the tasty Portland food scene, playing boardgames, seeing movies, and reading - a lot, especially historical fiction and science fiction. I am also a die-hard Carolina Panthers fan and a hardcore Portland Trailblazers fan. I come from an interfaith family, and attended and had my Bar Mitzvah in a Reform congregation. I'm currently a member of Havurah Shalom here in Portland.
