About the Author
BRYAN GEON moved to Portland for the first time in 1993 as a fresh-faced college grad. He left the area for law school and work, but Portland has always drawn him back, and he has spent over a decade relentlessly exploring and enjoying the city and its surroundings. He has lived in four of the city’s five sections and in three different Oregon counties (although not simultaneously). As both a long-time resident and a serial newcomer, Bryan is well qualified to guide other newcomers to the region. He has traveled to all 50 states and more than 50 foreign countries, and he is happy to click his heels together and repeat at least three times that there is no place like Portland. When not practicing law or writing, he enjoys traipsing around the Northwest and spending time with his wife and two sons.
