Portland, OR | life is pretty cool when you're living it
Hm, I’d try meetups if I were you—find an existing community of people who are into that stuff and introduce yourself! I can guarantee you there will be PLENTY of people out who will be eager to go out and explore with you as well!
Currently I work at a brand and product design agency as a digital strategist. So by day I do a lot of thinking and writing around brands, businesses, and digital marketing. But when the weekend comes, I love to shut my brain off and go play in the sun :)
