My self-summary
I'm an adventurous spirit. I find exhilaration getting to the high point, exploring a city at night, b-lines, setting foot in a forest for the first time.

A youth of punk-rock, skateboarding and bicycle racing -- A BFA, a minor in philosophy and breakfast burritos.

I have a particular brand of cookie I place on the table when brokering tense situations. Give it a try. Hum -- Everybody Wants to Rule the World.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in design & technology. I love my work! The details vary from boring and idiosyncratic to fun problem solving, often with a variety of great organizations.

Art and creative output is important to me, so beyond professional life, I'm often scribbling, designing, photographing and *other. I spend so much time doing digital work, I love the analogue texture of holding and making.

Winter adventure planning is underway. I’m looking forward to hiking, camping, climbing, biking, excursions in the snow (learning to ski?), and convincing friends from the desert that Portland is perfectly delightful to visit in November.
