Generally, I don’t see or pick up incoming phone calls unless scheduled or notified in advance, and I prefer to communicate by text or email; or for meetings, video call (see below). Calls usually go to voice mail, which is transcribed and emailed to me, as are text messages and call notifications.
Main number: +1 503 334 1894
Note: this is a Google Voice, i.e. virtual number. It routes the call to wherever I’ve set it to, which is usually my mobile phone below. This is what I usually give out, and prefer to use, because the account is free, flexible, permanent, and helpful for managing, forwarding, and archiving messages.
Mobile, direct number: currently is 971-6**-**** — I don’t generally post or want this posted anywhere publicly, and may switch or cancel the number at any time.
In some circumstances, I may call or text or reply directly from this number because I don’t have a good Internet connection needed to use Google Voice.
Generally I don’t communicate about any business or legal matter, or with media, without a reviewable record of it, preferably in writing, otherwise by recording, unless there is no possible way to do so. Interviews or media contacts, I record, observing any requirements for consent/notification of parties. I try to follow, and request prior agreement, to these guidelines: https://mediahandling.tmccormick.org
