Leadership, West Region

With his roots in activism as a co-founder of Oregon’s Siuslaw Chapter, to earning his policy chops as Oregon & Washington policy manager, to his current role as the West Coast Regional Director, Gus has been an active and inspiring member of the Surfrider network and staff for over 15 years. Gus spent his formative years swimming, surfing, and fishing in his home waters on the Central Oregon Coast before attending Oregon State University to pursue a BS in Fisheries and Wildlife Science with a specialty in ecological restoration. When he's not working, you can find him on the water, shredding fresh powder in the mountains, or spending time with his wife and two boys at their home in Rainier Beach, WA.
