What are you doing now?

For the past seven years I've been co-owner and director of brand strategy at North, an integrated advertising agency in Portland.

Tell us about yourself.

I am a native Oregonian and have been living and working in Portland since graduating from Linfield. I am happily married to Liz Delapoer, who is also a Linfield alumna, and we have two young boys. We love to get outdoors hiking, camping, skiing, etc. 

How did Linfield help prepare you for your career?

The two best tools I picked up at Linfield were the ability to form a sharp point of view and the ability to articulate it. Little in my line of work is truly objective, so being able to think on your feet and convey your thinking effectively are critical skills.
