Many of you who follow me on Instagram already know this, but I’m happy to officially announce that my wife Clay and I are moving to Portland, Oregon at the end of March!
Clay will be leaving her position as Director of Marketing at California College of the Arts & I am thrilled (beyond words) to announce that she will be joining me at Lisa Congdon Art & Illustration as Head of Marketing and Operations.
Since most of my beloved family is in Portland (sister & brother-in-law, niece, nephew & parents), it has been like a second home to me for 15 years. Clay and I are enormously excited for the opportunities Portland brings, including being close to family, the promise of more affordable home ownership (we’ve got an agent & are currently on a home search), strategic development of my business, connecting with friends & making new ones, enjoying the great outdoors, and taking part in the incredible creative community there.
It goes without saying that this departure is bittersweet (says the girl with the word California tattooed on her arm). But we could not be more ready or more elated for our new adventure. We’ll see you soon, Portland!
