Hi! I'm Emily and I live a musical life in Portland, Oregon. I am the ticketing manager for a major northwest music promoter, True West, and spend most of my work and free time around live music and concert productions. Much of my work is detailed office work, building the foundation to hundreds of events going on simultaneously throughout the Pacific Northwest. With this career, you must always look to the future, which is why I enjoy planning small getaways from the constant lights and music. My passion for live productions is balanced with my love for travel and solitude, nature and especially the water.
On top of working in the industry, I play and sing in a 5-piece folk-rock band called Great Wilderness. The band is led by two ladies (one of them is yours truly), and is inspired by sounds from the 70's. Though we play and write all original tunes the band carries a classic sound that people really seem to enjoy. We've been together for almost 5 years and intend to continue as our jobs and lives allow.
I love cooking and baking, and am an avid explorer of the culinary world. (I would be a chef if I wasn't such a sucker for music.) I love animals of all kinds, being in and around bodies of water, pun-making, and hey-ho -- I'm starting to get into old sci-fi novels!
