Born and raised in the heart of the Texas oil industry, Houston, it took a while for me to come around to loving the environment. I spent the first 10 years of my post high school life working for companies that supplied the industry. My father was a migrant worker as a child, and shared his love of the earth with me, and now at the NRDC I'm hoping to make up for lost time. I am a technology geek through and through, whether it is learning a new social networking tool, or building a bowdrill fire, I'm fascinated with innovation. I spend my life trying to balance technology with my passion for the wilderness, and as a NetRoots Campaign Manager I get to find that balance nearly every day.

Roots in:
Houston, Texas
Favorite place:
A hanging belay anywhere in the American Southwest
