5. What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Spending time with family and friends is my first choice. I love attending sporting events (Blazers and Ducks), golf, snow skiing and concerts.
6. Are you a Portland native? If so, where in PDX did you grow up? If not, what brought you here and what do you think of the city?
My family moved to SW Portland from Seattle when I was in middle school. My great grandparents and some extended family were born and raised in NE Portland, so we certainly did visit often before moving here. I attended schools in the Beaverton School District, then 2 years at Portland State University before transferring to the University of Oregon, where I received a Bachelor of Architecture degree.
7. Where do you live in Portland?
I currently live in suburban NW Portland, but my wife and I are always looking for opportunities to build a new home.
8. Describe your perfect Portland day.
In the city, I love to enjoy a great meal at one of the many incredible eateries, then head over to the Schnitz or Keller for a concert or the Moda Center to take in a Blazer game.
9. What do you love most about the city?
The livability, restaurants, and proximity to a diversity of activities. Portland is perfectly situated between the mountains and the beach and I enjoy visiting both regularly.
10. Share your favorite Portland neighborhood, and why.
I truly do not have a favorite neighborhood. It is the collective communities as a whole that make up the fabric of Portland such a unique place.
11. What tips do you have for those looking for a new home?
Do your homework and view as many homes as you can before making any decision. Spend the time necessary to visualize yourself living in each one. If you are considering buying an older home, make sure you understand what you are getting yourself into. Cosmetically, the home may look good, but underneath there may be a lot of problems you will need to deal with. Always consider an Everett home!
12. What advice would you offer those looking for a home?
The old saying “They don’t make ’em like they used to” is true when it comes to homes. A new home built by Everett Custom Homes is superior in craftsmanship, in protection of your physical health, the protection of our environmental health and energy efficiency to existing homes. With our ever expanding diversity of home types, I am confident we will have one ideally suited for you and your family.
