Dreamy Portland Birthday Party

Got the best gig ever doing a DIY dream catcher birthday party for Michelle Clabby at Instrument in Portland, an amazing converted industrial space featuring animal heads, teepees, lots of Macs, posters about fonts — you know, my kind of place.

Cinnamon Girls: Women Sing Neil Young

On February 25th 2012 I produced an all-female tribute to Neil Young at Mississippi Pizza Pub in Portland, Oregon. It featured over 20 performers and was the first event of its kind I’ve done out here on the best er, west coast.

Featured Artist for Alberta Main Street

The Alberta Arts District in Portland, Oregon is an amazing neighborhood full of awesome restaurants, the best ice cream I’ve ever had, and a “Last Thursdays on Alberta” event that is like a mix of Commercial Street in Provincetown and uhhh…Burning Man?  It’s a carnival atmosphere that is largely self-regulated, with the help of Alberta Main Street’s community organization.
