Catherine Berce

I’m a storyteller.

Job Writer, PR/Marketing / Berce Creative

Lives In The West End

I love helping businesses tell their stories with content that inspires. I specialize in PR writing, content marketing, copywriting, social media, and brand strategy.

I love walking around Portland and checking out new restaurants and coffee shops. My favorite Portland haunts include CBD Diamond Street, Bubba's Sulky Lounge, Bug Light, and the Eastern Trail.

Why did you choose Portland? I’ve loved Portland since the first time I visited. It’s beautiful, funky, and filled with interesting and creative people.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? Chris Busby, for keeping it real with The Bollard. Erin Kiley and Nathaniel Baldwin — owners of the Flea for All.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Show off Portland’s restaurants and natural beauty.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Bug Light, Eastern Promenade

What's the most surprising thing about this city? How many creative people live here!

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Pedis at Anna Philips Nail Bar, dinner at Fore Street.

What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? Portland Food Co-op

Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland. Ramen and pork buns at Pai Men Miyake followed by a show at the State. Followed by a walk around the city and breakfast at Chaval (yum!).

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? That’s easy! Bubba’s or Coffee by Design.
