What is your name?
What do you do for work and what is your slash (aka what do you do in your free time)?
I work for The Nature Conservancy, an international conservation group that works to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Specifically I do land protection work across the state of Montana to ensure that our special places remain protected from development. In my free time, I enjoy many outdoor activities including hiking with my dog Ollie, camping, backpacking, floating and softball. I also enjoy road trips and traveling.
How did you land in Helena?
I am a native of the city of Helena. I have lived for a time in Indiana, England, and Washington.
What is the best piece of advice that you ever received – career-related or otherwise?
Fake it until you make it.
When do you feel the most yourself?
When I'm spending time with friends in the great outdoors or while watching a sporting event.
Where is the last place you explored and where do you want to explore next?
This past spring I explored the neighborhoods, beaches, and parks of San Diego with my fiancee. Later this year we have a trip planned to Costa Rica to explore the great diversity (volcanoes, rain forest beaches, rain forests, and all of the wonderful fauna and flora) of this Central American county.
Tell us something about yourself that we didn’t ask:
I have been a member of HYP since it was founded. For the past year I have served as an Event Chair on the Board.
