My passion is product. Since I was young I’ve been consumed with the process and how things are designed and made. In starting @portland on Instagram, with over 255,000 followers, I’ve developed a new social media based community around the city I love. Using the @portland Instagram page I’ve designed Portland Gear, an apparel brand to show and share my passion for the city. Utilizing the concept of Pop up shops and my experience in apparel design and branding, I’ve sold products to 20 countries and 50 states in the past year. In March of 2016 I opened my first brick and mortar Portland Gear store in SW Portland next to Providence Park. Graduating in 2008 from Century High School in Hillsboro, and The University of Oregon with a degree in Digital Arts and Business in 2012, Portland is where I call home.
