A recent transplant from Brooklyn, New York, it was the “do it yourself” culture and lifelong love of biking that drew Brenda to Portland in the first place. She describes the city as “a perfect blend of a free-wheeling and art-loving”.
But it is not just her love of biking that got the attention of Filmed by Bike. Brenda, an experimental filmmaker with an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, works in digital design and new media using a feminist’s ideology, a hacker’s mentality and a child’s curiosity. She is a current teacher at the Northwest Film Center and has curated film/video programs throughout the U.S.
If your interested in hobnobbing with this Filmed by Bike juror, simply look for her riding around town, because she has never owned a drivers license and she’s excited to be exploring the streets of her new home, Portland.
