Hunky Scott moved to Portland in July after a stint in Brooklyn, where he studied at Columbia University (he even made the dean's list) while working as a go-go dancer and at a bar where his "uniform" was just a pair of underwear! These days he can be found working at the Red Cap Garage (1035 SW Stark) and around town with his beloved corgi, Stoli (who also posed in this week's cover shot!), adopted just this past December. A full package of brains and beauty, you can also find Scott people-watching on the South Park Blocks, volunteering for Cascade AIDS Project, and blogging at


Petite knockout Cassandra looks comfortable in front of the camera because she is: She frequently finds work doing a variety of modeling, from bodyscapes to art nudes to Playboy-style boutique photography, averaging six to eight shoots per month. When she's not working it for the lens, Cassandra is a full-time mom who favors cut-off jeans and Converse over the fussy outfits and killer heels she often wears for shoots. Her son, Ryan, now in first grade, is already a rocker thanks to his proud local music-supporting mother's influence (she just took him to get his very first mohawk!), and the two of them enjoy everything from the Beatles to the Sex Pistols.
