A little about me...

Hi I'm Jess, 28 year old cat lover from Lyons Oregon. I moved to the US from Southport England almost 20 years ago and couldn't imagine myself living anywhere else. I moved to Portland 8 years ago after trying and failing to be successful in San Francisco. I work at a local food co-op while being a full time student. My all-time favorite food is pizza, classic with just pepperoni especially when accompanied by a northwest IPA. I adore my two younger siblings, Mikey and Rose and appreciate my mother Vanessa.

These are a few of my favorite things..

I love getting crafty, I used to have my own jewelry business traveling up and down the west coast to various festivals. I learned a lot through the process and it led me to starting school. I really enjoy spending time with my long term partner Jesse, especially when we cook together. I never cooked before meeting him, he's a chef and has inspired me to try new things and cooking is something I love to do! Another passion of mine is hula hooping! I started my hoop journey 7 years ago and although I don't have as much time to practice as I used to, I still find great joy in spinning around that circular piece of plastic. Camping is another love of mine, you could say it's in my blood. I camp almost every chance I can in those summer months and this year am finally prepared to camp in the cold!
