Three years ago today

Three years ago today, I arrived in Portland, via my little red Toyota truck. It was loaded to the teeth with what was left of my possessions from my life in California. I was ready to make a new home. I knew I wanted to grow roots, and roots I have grown. I consider Portland my true home and feel as if I’ve lived here my whole life.

Thanks so much to Sherri for introducing me to many of Portland’s magical places, for making me untold numbers of delicious vegan meals, and for generally making me feel like I will always have a safe, comfy home. Portland just wouldn’t be the same without you.

And thanks to Portland’s tech community for making me feel welcome straight off the bat and for being a tremendous source of support and friendship as I grow in both my personal and professional life.

I can’t wait to see what the next three years and beyond will bring!

    OK, this has made me all weepy. Which, given the current state of this wicked cold, kind of hurts. Thank you, my darling wife. I look forward to many more years, vegan meals, and making our home together only cozier. You make my life feel complete in so many ways.
