With the simple goal of creating community, and connecting the various fragments of it, I write… and write, almost stubbornly, about the neighborhood I live and thrive in: Foster-Powell. It’s not your typical Portland neighborhood, which is fitting, as I’m not your typical writer. Or am I? I suppose I’d be lying if I said, “This will just be your run-of-the-mill blog, highlighting some of the savory parts of outer SE Portland.” Because, really, this blog is gonna blow your mind, and everything you read will show you just how fantastic FoPo is. Actually, I’m aiming for somewhere in the middle. As for who I am. That’s the boring part. I’m a dreamer, a devoted husband, some-day (hopefully) dad, amateur green thumb, absent-minded introvert, reluctant socialite, and lover of the following in no particular order: conspiracy theories, family and friends, the San Francisco Giants, bison (mostly alive, but the occasional burger too), Ireland, my wife, 1980′s and early 90′s rap music, the mountains, and Good Will Hunting.
Young, old, boy or girl…and maybe a tad sarcastic. You enjoy capturing the oddities of FoPo, whether through photograph, word, or otherwise. If you want to lend that art to FosterPowellPdx as a contributor, let us know. Email email@example.com
