Andy joined the Scappoose Bay Watershed Council as our Coordinator in October 2021 and transitioned to Board member in October 2022. He has over 15 years of experience leading political, advocacy, and conservation efforts, and has valuable experience as an organizational and non-profit leader. Andy holds a degree in Environmental Ethics and Policy from the University of Portland. He has served on a variety of advisory boards working on water, transportation, and pollution related issues.
Andy loves spending time outside with family and friends walking, hiking, camping, birding, fishing, hunting, or just sitting somewhere enjoying being outside and having a conversation. He can also be found playing his guitar or listening to his favorite records and watching a variety of sports while rooting for his favorite teams. Andy’s family has called Columbia County home for 25+ years and he is glad to be back with his wife and children to help make our watershed a place where people, animals, and nature thrive.
