Organizer / Board Member

Longtime West Seattle neighbor and lifetime Seattle native. Growing up surrounded by trees, mountains and seas the instinctive feeling of being one with nature will never leave my consciousness. I am on the core group of several Sustainable West Seattle endeavors. Carbon free transportation associated with West Seattle Spokespeople and DIY Bikes as well as growing food locally at COWS (Community Orchard of West Seattle) are my passions and commitments to a healthier and happier community.
My day job is the Owner of Alki Bike and Board in the Admiral District. Typical of a gardener/farmer I like to plant seeds of change in our community and watch them grow.
