THE BORING, BUT IMPORTANT, STUFF:
Having worked in the legal and finance industries professionally for over fifteen years both domestically and internationally, my real estate career combines my education, professional experience and personal interests. I am a native Londoner, originally having moved to the U.S. transferring into Portland's prestigious Reed College. While I left for a while to pursue grad school and for life to take place elsewhere, Portland always drew me “home," and so I decided here is where my heart was meant to be and deeply rooted myself in our City.
THE COOL STUFF:
Growing up involved with housing of displaced asylum seekers from Rwanda, South Africa, Bosnia and Bangladesh, from a very young age I was exposed to philanthropic giving and doing. I care about the world we live in and those who live in it with me; as a Partner at RESETWorld, a sustainability platform which targets the youth to re-think consumerism and demands corporate accountability in a variety of ways; and cofounder of Service Group, a money management firm using innovative tools and technologies for creative allocation methods, then using the returns in-part to invest into philanthropic efforts and provide humanitarian aid; I look to contribute to the world we live in and to leave a legacy of impact. My personal passions outside of real estate involve a few philanthropic interests: one being Kidspire, a non-profit organization stemming from our Lake Oswego office and reaching as far as Romania, Kenya and Vietnam — being a former pro-equestrian athlete, the second, an organization which aims to keep local/rural area at-risk youth in various horse discipline riding programs and off the streets.
THE PERSONAL STUFF:
I am a skilled equestrian athlete and lover of Portland's fine dining establishments. I am a member of Abundant Life and Bridgetown where you can find me on Sundays! I've traveled to six continents and love a good adventure — almost always carrying my passport with me on my person.
