    Agent ImageMy introduction and education in Real Estate started back in college, 1989, in Los Angeles, California. I chose to work with M Realty because of their top of the world technology and innovative home searching website unmatched anywhere in the US. I enjoy meeting Portland locals and opening the door to so many different and unique homes to view. I also have been working with families relocating to Portland since day one as a licensed Portland Realtor. Having a vast knowledge of the Portland homes for sale, neighborhoods, schools, local places of interests and just an overall love for our city makes this job more of a passion. My past working bio consisted of other interests within public relations: An Astronomy educator for NASA and the Griffith Observatory. President/CEO of AIRTIME BOARDS snowboard company. Creator and author of KEVDIDDY children\'s music, books and videos. In my spare time I enjoy watching my beautiful boy grow, camping where you can\'t see civilization, giving star talks under a clear night sky, The White Album, brewing my own organic blueberry wine and Organic gardening. I have been living off of my Organic fruit and vegetable garden for the last 25 years. I don\'t go produce shopping for 8 months of the year. I also have some of the most healthiest and happiest chickens from which I get fresh eggs daily. It\'s a good day to live in Portland!
