Brian has lived his entire life in Washington state, living and playing in the wild expanses of the Pacific Northwest. The generational traditions of spending weeks at a time camping at locations like Mt. Rainier and the Hoh River have given Brian a profound love and passion for the local environment and native wildlife. Brian is also an avid lover of music and a lifelong musician, playing the drums, piano, and even occasionally singing for local bands. Brian had been working with Conservation Northwest on their Cascades to Olympics program as a contractor for nearly a year before becoming the project coordinator in May of 2020. Brian has an A.A.A.S. in Music/Technology and an A.A. in Environmental Studies from Shoreline College, a B.S. in Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Science/Studies, and a Masters of Environmental Studies with an emphasis on Habitat Connectivity and Wildlife Crossings from the Evergreen State College.
