We are (creative) Portland
Portland is full of creative, energetic people. Here, the question, "What do you do?" often gets several answers. There's the day job(s), the side project, the passion project, and oftentimes the band, the art practice, or the craft. It's rare to find a Portlander who does just one thing; maybe that's why so much is happening in a relatively small city (pop. 66,000). Explore the profiles below to find out more about who lives and/or works in Portland, and if you know a local character who's missing, send the "create a profile" link along! We hope you'll join us in representing the full breadth of what "creative" means here.

I write fiction, short stories, and poetry. Lately, it's mostly haiku inspired by what I dream about at night.
Creator of tasty lobster rolls. Avid supporter of Portland's food truck scene. Passionate about good food that accessible.
