I am a nerd.
I’m also an attorney, obsessed with negotiation, a former actress, a current writer, and a forever student. I am passionate about helping other people learn how to negotiate because someone once told me I couldn’t do it. They were wrong.
I graduated from law school long enough ago that there was a reunion and I missed it. Since then I’ve advised librarians, comedians, ruffians and a gentleman with some very passionate ideas about revolutionizing televised sport fishing on all matter of legal conundrums.
Most of my clients are nerds, too. I work with comic book creators, authors, game designers, musicians and freelancers of every stripe to help them protect their rights and get paid fairly for the work they do.
I live in Portland, Oregon and sit on the board of Oregon Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts. When I am not Doing All The Things, I relax in the shadow of an urban volcano with my lovely and talented wife Dylan, and a ridiculous number of animals.
