Portland | Eden Dawn & Ashod Simonian

Written By Amber Spry | May 6, 2024

Together, we’re going to make this a beautiful day.

Ambitious Leo duo, Eden Dawn and Ashod Simonian will be discussing work that makes you vibrate inside to resonate with those on the outside.

Eden Dawn is a Guinness World Record holder, an award-winning journalist, a PNBA bestselling author, a veteran stylist for bands and fashion editorials, and a sequin-wearing lady with a microphone. She’s a mainstay of the Portland culture scene often spotted interviewing authors or celebrities onstage at live events, performing at a storytelling show, or chatting through television segments. Additionally, she is the curator and host of the quarterly Fashion in Film series at the historic Hollywood Theatre.
Ashod Simonian is an award-winning commercial director, the co-founder and creative director of niche perfume brand Imaginary Authors, and the author of Real Fun, a book of photography and stories documenting his decade spent touring the world in various indie rock bands.
Together they created and co-wrote the Book of Dates series for Sasquatch Penguin Random House, which includes The Portland Book of Dates, The Seattle Book of Dates, and others soon to be announced.
