Bashar Wali
“Make History By Respecting It”

I live in Portland, so naturally I’m all about making.
But the thing that I love to make most, is transcendent experiences. I love crafting local, artisanal… Sorry. Did I mention that I’m from Portland? Let me start again, without the Portlandese (or Brooklynese or Austinese): I love creating experiences that elevate humans, that makethem feel respected, cared for, deeply rested, fed, nourished and refreshed. And I have a job that lets me do that.

I am constantly on the look out for places that celebrate their dreamers. Cities and towns across this great land where makers, doers and creators are Rock Stars; literally. Where authentic is a way of life. I do all of these things for one over-arching reason: to make transcendent experiences for my fellow travelers. “Travelers,” in the Keseyian sense.”
