My self-summary
Ambitious teddy bear.
I’m really good at
I'm a lawyer and businessman. I've helped asylum-seekers and gone after white-collar criminals. I've consulted for all sorts of startups and nonprofits. I like helping people make things.

I'm a maker. I blacksmith, turn wood. I like to cook and play with my cocktail shaker. I write.

I'm a traveler. I'm a cyclist and cyclotourist and I do like to hike. I like wandering old cities and meeting people on the other side of the world. Then I like coming home and getting to work.
The first things people usually notice about me
I asked some friends. For better or for worse… here are their answers:

”You have really pretty eyes.”
“You need a shave.”
“Your necktie. Which is tied in a knot that hasn’t been used in, like, a hundred years.”
“Shut up.”
“You’re ugly and nobody will ever love you.”
“You smell like orchids have been fucking.”
“You’re wearing a suit, WHY ARE YOU WEARING A SUIT???”
“You’re being attacked by ice bears.”
“You’ve got very pretty eyes.”
“This is for OKCupid isn’t it?”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Histories with heart. Stories with a brain. Big adventures. Little adventures. SCOTUSblog.

Food in Portland? The lunch bento at Miyake. Wat and injera at Asmara. Lazy Sunday brunch at Bao Bao. Meze at Falafel Underground on the patio out back. A pourover at Tandem. A financier from Standard. Cocktails from Vinland or Hunt&Alpine or 188.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Countries to visit. Countryside to explore. Startups to upstart. Cocktails to shake.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have miles to go before I sleep.
