I promote and support Portland's creative economy
Job Executive Director / Creative Portland
Lives In Oakdale
In December 2010, I became the executive director of Creative Portland, the city's local arts agency also charged with growing and supporting the creative economy. I enjoy connecting with people who value this city's distinctive zeitgeist and are willing to help make it thrive for years to come. I love Portland because my family and I can walk downtown, experience great food, music and art, and run into people we know.
I help nonprofits communicate their mission effectively, and I advocate for flexible work arrangements.
I focus on creative solutions first and foremost; offering expert advice and ideas to support artists in Portland's creative community.
