Sacha earned her Bachelor of Science in Journalism/Public Relations at the University of Oregon. She is an avid reader and writer, and while she manages our office, Sacha wears many hats for Ruby Porter and she is what we call our “utility player”.
Chris is a jack of all trades at Ruby Porter Marketing & Design. Using his bachelor’s degree in Political Science, he has worked as a writer, a salesman, a designer, and as client care.

Above all else, Chris is focused on keeping clients happy while bringing in new and exciting projects to the business.
Chris is also a world traveler, having been to 26 different countries, volunteers in and around the community through his work with the Active 20-30 Club of Eugene, and an avid dog lover, outdoor enthusiast, and Veteran of the Air Force.
