Welcome to Portland

Portland, Oregon is a seaport located in the Willamette Valley at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. And yes, it is named after Portland, Maine. Over 60 % of Oregon’s population lives within the Portland Metropolitan area. The city has population of over 600,000.

Beginning in 60s, Portland became noted for its liberal values, and the city has earned a reputation as a bastion of counterculture. Portland ranks as some of the most popular American city, based on where people want to live.

The city government is notable for its land-use planning and investment in public transportation (not a given fact in the USA).  Portland is frequently recognized as one of the world’s most environmentally conscious cities. It is known for high walkability, large community of bicyclists, farm-to-table dining, expansive network of public transportation options, and over 10,000 acres (4,000 hectares) of public parks.  Contrary to Austin, whose slogan Portland has “copied” ” (Keep Portland Weird), Portland’s climate is marked by warm, dry summers and cool, rainy winters. Portland has been called the “City of Roses” for over a century.

Natalie Neville

My name is Nathalie Neville.

Originally from Paris France, I grew up in the city and had a very typical French upbringing. I come from a family of 4 children, 1 older brother and 2 younger sisters.

My father was a business man and my mother a home maker.  My dad was also the president of the Paris Chamber of commerce.  My mom  was and still is an incredible cook!! So I grew up eating AMAZING foods!

I went to Catholic schools and took the subway and bus at a very young age. I went to night clubs starting at the age of 13 and started modeling at the age of 15. I spent most of my summers in either Normandy or the South of France. Most my relatives all lived in Paris.
