Gordon is a graduate from the University of California, San Diego. He attended graduate school at Reed College but did not complete his curse of study as life beckoned him in other directions.
Gordon is a long time pilot who is rated in flying gliders, helicopters, and multi-engine aircraft. He enjoys catch-and-release fishing, climbing Cascade volcanoes, and running marathons.
Art and science are his passions. Sometimes he thinks about time in the universe.
He currently resides in Seattle, Washington.
