I am the Energy, Environment and Land Use Policy Manager for the Association of Oregon Counties since July 2013. The Association of Oregon Counties represents Oregon’s 36 Counties at the state and federal legislatures. I have been with AOC since 2010. I spent the previous thirteen years as a science and math teacher in Minnesota, California, Thailand, India and Oregon. I hold a Master of Natural Science and Environmental Education and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Oregon’s Planning, Policy and Public Management Program. I live in Eugene with my wife, Stephanie, and my son, Sam.
I am relatively new to the Oregon Green Schools and am working on cultivating relationships with communities not currently involved in the OGS. I look forward to seeing the expansion of the program and working with all the other amazing members of OGS.
