Event & Marketing Manager
Emily Wyant specializes in throwing a party. From office toasts to spearheading Portland Monthly + Portland Bride & Groom’s signature events, Emily’s office life revolves around directing, managing, coordinating, and dreaming up the next big bash. In addition to wearing her party hat, Emily’s also responsible for coming up with the marketing initiatives and strategies for the year, developing partnerships in the community, acting as the liaison between our editorial and advertising departments, and basically running around at a million miles per hour on a daily basis.
Born and raised in Oregon, Emily moved to Los Angeles where she worked at IMG producing the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, wrangling pro-skateboarders on Street League Skateboarding’s 2014 summer tour, and working on her tan. She moved back to Portland for graduate school where she earned her MFA in Applied Craft + Design, held two solo art shows, and designed the décor for Feast Portland from the very beginning. In her free time, she and her partner Ben Ediger curate and run 209 gallery out of their NE living room.
