Our Team

Portland maker consulting

Jim Hassert

Director // Co-owner

In 2001 Jim accepted a production assistant job at Resource Revival, a small Portland based maker of recycled bicycle part products. Over the next 10 years he became a co-owner and learned everything he could about operating a successful small business. In 2013 he was brought on as Chief Operations Officer at Grovemade, a position he held until diving head first into growing and running Portland Made Collective in 2018. He loves serving Portland’s makers and helping passionate makers succeed.

Sarah Toor

Head of Creative // Co-owner

With a history of creative directing, marketing, graphic design, and photography, Sarah is passionate about communication design and the impact a well-curated message can have. For over a decade she has helped small, local businesses put their best foot forward, bringing her UX and UI skills, problem-solving, and imagination to the table. On a more personal note she enjoys a good puzzle, editing audio and video, and playing improvised piano.

Yuji Tomita

Digital Developer

Yuji’s background includes starting a winery in Argentina, helping to launch Grovemade here in Portland, and co-founding Studio Paradise, a design and product studio. Yuji takes ideas and design and codes them into high functioning, attractive websites with great user experience. When Yuji isn’t using his stylus, track pad and keyboard, he’s enjoying VR, time with his dog, and the possibly the best homemade Japanese food ever.
