I am an Oregon Native and Bend local for 27 years. I was raised on a family farm, my father being the fourth generation Ropp to own and work the land. I attended Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon where I studied Criminology and the Culinary Arts. I have a passion for great foods and learning the law. Durring my college years I spent most of my time in the kitchen learning old world techniques, and some time studying international law.
I live an active lifestyle, and where else better to do it than Central Oregon. I am an avid skier, and downhill raced for Mountain View durring my high school years. My other passions include backpacking, hiking, camping, mountain biking, riding my dirt bike and reading a good book. On any given evening you can find me walking the numerous trails at Shevlin Park with my trusty lab Omar (Named after the infamous Omars Restaurant and Bar in Ashland, Oregon).
My background, knowledge, expertise and youthful attitude is a guaranteed formula for our success.
