A black cat lying on the ground

I picked Mad Fish because the people truly care about their clients! Everyone shows up for the day ready to make a positive change and has the awesome energy to go along with it.

This is a good one that’s always refreshed with awesome artists both new and established.

Fun fact about yourself.  

When I decided to move from NYC to Portland, I had never stepped foot in Oregon before. A little crazy, but well worth it!

No pets of my own, but I live with my cat niece, Nancy.
