Art is my passion. Immersive, interactive street art is a great way to get everyone you encounter involved in the process. The costume events we organize give participants the opportunity to express themselves in creative ways.

I've been involved in interactive street art events here in Portland for nearly ten years. As an active member of MEETinPortland I've participated in and organized events including Portland Urban Iditarod teams, Bus tours, hiking and backpacking trips and large event parties. I'd love to expand our events to include some bike and street festival events with the immersive street art aspect.

Stumptown Events provides opportunities for creative people to share their passions with the town and contribute in creating the community we all love.


Born in Tacoma, Wa., I grew up in Federal Way, just south of Seattle. I took a shortcut through Beaumont, Tx. on my way back to the Northwest. I moved to Portland in 1996.


I studied Illustration and Visual Communications with a focus on Art Direction at the Art Institute of Seattle, then Software Engineering at PCC.


I’m a displaced Commercial Artists and Software Engineer, currently working full time as Warehouse Manager for a large industrial plumbing supply company in Portland.


I hail from a long line of artists and engineers, and generally creative types. I’ve  earned my “Portland Weird” stripes from years of great Portland events such as the original Caco’s Drunken Rampage/SantaCon, Guerilla Pub Crawls and the greatest of events- the Portland Urban Iditarod.


My “Dream of the 90’s” is a world where people can come together as a community of self expression in fun, creative -and free- street theater. I love Street Theater events that provide a safe, fun environment for individuals or groups to come together and express their unique creative talents in whatever form that might manifest.

Portland has a rich history of Great, “Wierd” but mostly Fun and Creative events. My Goal is to develop a stable format, working with the city of Portland, the police and local business AND YOU, to ensure that great events like these will continue for future generations of “Portlandians”.
