I am the director of Oregon's Kitchen Table, a statewide community engagement program housed at the National Policy Consensus Center at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon (USA). I have been involved in participatory and deliberative democracy for many years and have developed a particular interest in deliberative democracy related to foundational documents. I am a lawyer and a poet, and I write on democracy matters for a variety of publications.
