Beth Schechter - Portrait by Outer Elements

I’m an artist, writer, designer, and organizer based in Portland, OR.

I specialize in helping people to promote their work, tell their story, and teach or explain something technical or scientific to a beginner audience. I also facilitate workshops, teach, and sometimes run nonprofits. Currently, I’m the Executive Director of the Open Cannabis Project, which aims to document every existing strain of cannabis to protect them from illegitimate patents.

When I’m not working, you can find me painting in my studio at The Palace PDX, getting my hands dirty on random building projects,  jumping into interactive performances, and using every opportunity I have to learn something new.
