I am the co-host of Almost Heretical. I help build Buffer. I am a husband and father to my two favorite girls in the world (my wife is an amazing writer!) I grew up in the shadows of Mt. Hood, alongside the Willamette River in a town with more Christmas trees than people. Nestled just between the mountains to the east, great Columbia river to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west, the misty Portland area is our home. I’ve driven all over the US, and I think the Portland area is the most beautiful and has the most amazing people.  My wife and I happily grow our family here on this sacred soil.

I enjoy audio books, podcasting, deep conversations, & genuine people. I feel so grateful to get to work at an amazing company with such special people. Buffer is amazing! I’m the author of The Last Generation of Kids That Play Outside and I co-founded Sumry.

Hansons in BanffA peaceful day to me is: Going for a walk with my wife. Crawling around on the floor with my daughter while we pretend we are dogs. Watching the sunrise over the city from a hill near our home. Playing strategy games with friends. Resting. Talking. Learning. Listening. Being quiet.
