Gordon has served as the executive director for Part of the Solution ADR Services and as a senior consultant for the Consensus Building Institute.
In addition to his career in conflict resolution, Gordon is a competitive runner with recent U.S. Masters All-American performances in the mile, 3K, 5K, and 10K distances. He will compete as part of the University of Oregon Running Club and the Oregon Track Club.
Gordon’s undergraduate degree is from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and he holds both a master of arts degree and a graduate certificate in dispute resolution from the University of Massachusetts Boston. Gordon earned his law degree from Suffolk University Law School.
