After earning a degree in natural resource management from Colorado State University, he was a contractor for the Grand Canyon Trust before joining the Center. Much of his work focuses on fighting fossil fuel extraction and infrastructure in the interest of protecting the vast array of species in Utah and the public lands they depend on. He participates in organizing with the region’s youth-led climate justice movement, which is ushering in a just transition away from fossil fuel dependency in the Southwest.
