Andrew grew up in San Diego where Vespa scooters are a popular way to get around but was too busy riding BMX bikes to focus on buying one for himself. After waiting too many years, he purchased a Vespa Primavera 150 from Vespa Portland in 2016. Ever since then, he has been a huge scooter enthusiast, and heavily involved in the Portland scooter community. He started the PDXScooters instagram, an account dedicated to the scooter lifestyle in Portland. In 2017, the owners of Vespa Portland planned their retirement, and Andrew took it as a sign that he was destined to leave his lousy corporate job and run the best scooter shop in the Pacific Northwest. He bought Vespa Portland in February 2018, and the rest is history.

In a former life Katy studied in Scotland where she received a master’s degree in criminal justice and used that knowledge to help place at-risk foster children with new families. Later on she worked in the wine industry here in the Willamette Valley ensuring people had a great experience at the winery during tastings and events. She’s working on getting her endorsement to ride scooters stateside but spent some time riding in the chaos of Vietnamese cities where a single day feels equivalent to a few months of US riding experience.
Katy has come to Vespa Portland looking for a new challenge while having a great time getting to know the local scooter community.
