Meet the Editor
That sounds kind of fancy, but we can keep it casual.
My name is Anne and I’ve lived in Oregon my whole life (Portland, to be exact). I’ve traveled to 20+ countries yet still find myself eager to land in PDX and uber on home.
I started Oregon Essential as a means to share my passion for Oregon with those visiting the state.
What this is: This is a passion project full of opinions, ideas and personal stories.
What this isn’t: Professional. I’m not an expert in anything besides my love for my state.
“There’s something that I can’t describe about the city [Portland] that I really love – just physically – how it feels to walk around there, and have coffee there. Also, the way that it’s a little overcast sometimes. Something about Portland just really resonated with me.”Fred Armisen
This love has taken me to all four corners and every coffee shop in between. Follow along if you’d like, all are welcome!
