Mr. Congeniality and triple threat of singing, dancing, and acting talent
Portland Native (1980)
Favorite Place: Fat City Cafe
Why? Breakfast is my favorite meal. I grew up going to Fat City Cafe with my grandparents. Now I take my nieces and nephews. I’ve lived near Multnomah Village since I was 13, and it’s always been my favorite breakfast spot. They make their own cinnamon rolls and the Farmers Sizzle is savory paradise. And it’s one of the few real neighborhood spots that haven’t changed much since my childhood. Whenever I want to read a script, or work on a show, I come here and spend a couple hours. It feels like home.
Portland is…“Portland has changed..immensely since I was a kid. In some ways for good, in other ways that are difficult. The performing arts scene has blossomed into something with enormous potential, but we’re at a critical time for our city. Beyond the skyrocketing cost of living, we are facing a real shortage in workable performance space and limited institutional support. Not to mention living wages for artists. If we’re not careful Portland will fast become a city that can’t sustain the artistic and creative communities that made it so attractive in the first place. I’d hate to see us become another cautionary tale like San Francisco.”
