Chief Executive Officer
I grew up as beach kid and lifeguard in Laguna Beach where I gained a true appreciation for both the power and fragility of our oceans and coasts. Now as Surfrider Foundation's CEO, I have the privilege of leading the world's largest grassroots network dedicated to the protection our ocean, waves and beaches.
Oregon Policy Manager
The activist loves Oregon more than he loves life, said Tom McCall, one of the state's greatest governors and champion of the Beach Bill. So Oregon was a natural landing pad for this outspoken North Carolinian, reared feet firmly planted in the sand. As Oregon Field Manager for Surfrider Foundation and extreme karaoke professional, I have an amazing opportunity to amplify voices across this great state.
California Policy Manager
I was drawn to Surfrider’s philosophy of being a “member-driven” organization that inspires effective coastal activism. I’m constantly amazed by the throngs of Surfrider supporters who participate in issues they care about. As a California Policy Manager, I have the honor of working with highly motivated, intelligent and caring people—and together, we are protecting our oceans, beaches and waves—one victory at a time.
Ocean Program Manager
As the Ocean Program Manager, I support Surfrider's engagement in marine protected areas (MPAs), regional ocean planning, renewable energy, and federal legislation. I live in the beautiful state of Oregon where I enjoy surfing cold waves and hanging out on the beach whenever I can.
Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager
Traveling down the Garden State Parkway from Bergen County, NJ to go to the beach was routine by age five. My grandmother bought an oceanfront summer cottage on Long Beach Island soon afterwards and that was it. The beach and ocean were the front yard, my playground, and the only place I wanted to be.
