My wife Kari and I and our four children relocated to Bend in December 1996; we were looking for adventure and lifestyle! Bend has been great to us and we have never regretted our decision to dive in and have a better life in here. Since the move I have owned construction companies and built online businesses as well as adventuring into real estate. After 20 years in the area I’ve seen it all and can offer insight and local perspectives that you only get after many years of actually living here.
Favorite thing to do in Central Oregon/Bend?
I love the high mountain lakes and streams! Its impossible to see it all; the flowers and the mountain views are epic. Eating at many of the great locations downtown Bend is one of my favorite things to do too.
Ducks or Beavers?
Ducks, of course.
