Meet the Man Behind the @Portland Instagram

Marcus Harvey is a Portland-born, Nike-loving, Oregon Duck alum with his own apparel brand that celebrates Portland pride.

“I loved the Blazers and Timbers, but the logos weren’t ‘Portland’ enough for me,” Marcus said, “so I just came up with Portland Gear.”

He also created the @Portland Instagram handle, which now has over 380,000 followers. But his rapid success has brought on a struggle with anxiety, which he discussed publicly.
