Tanisha Wallace Porath
I was born a poor black girl in…well actually I had a pretty middle class existence in Anchorage, Alaska where I was born and raised. I studied photography at an art college in Seattle, the name of which, try as I might, I can’t quite remember. Soon after I graduated I moved to Portland, OR with my husband and started my career as an editorial photographer. Some of my clients have included: Willamette Week, The Oregonian and several other periodicals. I have two roommates that I happen to have given birth to, my daughter 11 and my son 14. I became a widow on April 2, 2013.
I became a writer on April 3, 2013.
