This is the last big project I did for the TEDxConcordiaUPortland gift bags!  I wanted to contribute something to the gift bags, since I was in charge of coordinating them.  After much brainstorming, I settled on making buttons! I arranged for I Heart Art: Portland (Thank you!!) to sponsor the buttons.  At first I was going to borrow their button maker, but I’ve wanted a button maker for years and this seemed to be the perfect...

I’m super excited to share this project that I helped put together for the TEDxConcordiaUPortland event on March 31st, 2012.  When the planning team was brainstorming on what we wanted to put in the gift bags, we came up with the idea of having a thank you card in each bag. Egg Press We thought this would be a great way for the attendees to participate in the day’s event by writing a thank you card to the person who moved...

  At the end of last year, I joined two committees.  I decided that since I wasn’t going to sell in 2012, volunteering for organizations that I love would be a great way to stay connected to my community.  Now I’m on the planning team for TEDxConcordiaUPortland!  I’m thrilled to be helping them this year.  I attended their inaugural event last year and I was so impressed with everything.  From the speakers to...

This is the rendering of the Max station that will be very close to my house.

West Side Story


Posted on Jan 12, 2012

Last Saturday, I saw the stage production of West Side Story.  This was a pretty big deal for me.  West Side Story is tied with A Chorus Line (I saw this last year!) as my favorite musical.  I discovered the movie when I was 15 years old by renting it from the Multnomah County Library.  I remember forcing my friends to watch this musical which at 15 in 1990 wasn’t the most hip thing and my friends weren’t thrilled. I have...
