Overview


Hello, I'm Stuart Coates

I'm a design and hospitality enthusiast living in Portland, Oregon. I've spent the last four years making people feel welcome to be where they are. Since 2015, that's with Ace Hotel and Knot Springs.

I seek to work in environments that require creativity, critical thinking, and urgency and with those that foster iteration, teamwork, experimentation, and community.

If you want chat about working on a project, drop me a line.
