What do you do at Bissell Brothers?

On the inside, I try to listen to every employee and fix problems, small or large, so that everyone can do their jobs better and more enjoyably. On the outside, I communicate and tell stories about what we do here to the world at-large. 

How did you get involved with Bissell BRothers? 

When Noah said he wanted to brew beer for a living, I weighed my options and decided against my previous solo career plans, and opted instead to try to grow something with him that would become bigger than ourselves. 

What is your favorite thing about bbb?

Our place in the greater Portland food and drink community. I am proud of the role we fill in this town, and I think we've done a good job staying true to what we set out to accomplish and provide people. I sleep easy at night knowing we haven't compromised our morals. 

what do you do outside of the brewery?

I try to corral our 3 year-old, stay in shape, cook, and take photos. 

what is your most prized possession?

My Canon Mark II. My camera was the first outlet I had to entrepreneurship and realizing I could carve my own path in life, not choose from the options that society laid out for me.

if you could have one super power what would it be?

The power to metabolize alcohol into lean body mass.
