Community Spotlight: William Deresiewicz

Part of an ongoing series highlighting the amazing people in the Portland creative community.

William Deresiewicz is an essayist and critic based in Portland. He gave a CreativeMornings talk in 2012 about the entrepreneurial ideal among creative millennials and in American society as a whole, based on his essay for the New York Times, Generation Sell.

He recently published Excellent Sheep, a manifesto for people searching for the kind of insight on leading, thinking, and living that elite schools should be—but aren’t—providing.

We caught up with him on the global CreativeMornings blog. Check out the additional portraits captured by Ashley Courter at the Museum of Contemporary Craft last month, when Bill came by to hear Jen Delos Reyes give her take on education.
