David Neevel is an inventor. He works at Wieden + Kennedy, “a full-service, creatively driven advertising agency based in Portland, Oregon”. He’s also cool looking. And funny looking, but not in a haha way, in the typical way that most of the US thinks is weird and it’s completely ubiquitous in Portland way. I like this dude.
