I am the co-host of Almost Heretical — a podcast I started with my best friend, Tim Ritter. I help build Buffer and re-imagine the future of work. My fun and amazing wife and I have two sweet daughters. I grew up in the shadows of Mt. Hood, on a hill overlooking 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 BanffI enjoy walks podcasting, audio production, board games, science, space travel, nerding out on topics, listening, observing, analyzing, impersonating people…
