Network Under 40 exists at the intersection of friendship and business. It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people.
Network Under 40: Portland exists at the intersection of friendship and business. We understand that we live in a connection economy and the foundation to success in career and personal life hinges on genuine relationships with real people.
We are about mixing business and pleasure, throwing out the conventional wisdom that says you have to change who you are to ‘be professional’. Instead, we encourage you to be real, to have fun, and to cultivate authentic and meaningful relationships around social activities.
It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people. Fortunately, there are a lot of cool people for you to get to know at our events!
Don’t believe us? Check out what Inc. Magazine has to say about how we build local communities and turn transactional, tedious networking events into fun, meaningful experiences!
Come as you are. Build rapport. Leave with a foundation for genuine relationships.

Connect With Your Local Director
Hi! I’m the author of the upcoming science fiction novel, Signal, the author of How to Take Notes at the Speed of Light, I host the popular Substack Discovery, and was the host and producer of the show, Moonwalk. I’ve worked with New York Times bestselling authors, too—though, I’ll be honest, that happened about a million years ago.
Right now, I’m focusing on my novel, connecting with good people, and having fun. I love storytelling—and I love the depth and emotional connection that good drama can foster. It’s something I’ve loved my whole life.
I like being outside, going to the movies, traveling, hanging out with my girlfriend, reading too many books, and laughing a lot. I’m excited to meet you!
