W+K Talk, Portland


I have been enjoying beautiful Portland OR weather since my arrival on the west coast thursday. My Brooklyn transplant friends Jen and Michael Cogliantry have been wonderful hosts, showing me around Portland, trying hard to convince me to switch coasts as well!

Highlight of my trip was yesterday’s presentation at prestigious Wieden+Kennedy. A big thank you to the W+K Studio for having me and to everyone that came out. Here are pictures of the talk and some shots I was able to take in W+K’s amazing space. I especially enjoyed hugging the W+K Beaver goodbye.

Did you attend my talk? Do you have any feedback? Anything you wished I’d talk about? Let me know! Always love to improve my presentations!

Thank you Portland, you’ve been very good to me!

  1. Dang, I wanted to come :(

  2. Glad to hear Portland was good to you! I attended the talk (sitting near the bottom wearing a bright blue coat) with fellow design students and enjoyed it very much. It was both informative and funny—love the photo of the trash bags—and left me inspired to write more, tweet more, and create more, as well as joining you in finding the beauty in everyday things. Thanks for coming out to share with us.

  7. Hi!
    Listening to you speak and seeing your work was truly inspiring and encouraging. Thank you so much for coming to Portland to brighten our day. I too always have a camera with me, I love finding the beautiful things in life and photographing them, to keep forever and share with others. I’m glad you enjoyed Portland. Hearing about your thesis project was my favorite part, and of course those trash bags were pretty great :)

    Thanks again! Take care.
