Volunteer Efforts

Task force member for the devlopment of Bozeman's Municipal Climate Action Plan (co-chair) and Community Climate Action Plan.

Volunteer and fund raiser for Big Sky Kids Cancer Camps, a subsidiary of EagleMount Therapeutic Recreation, dedicated to helping young people with cancer and their families. The camps are fun, generally outdoor oriented, and a great way for the kids to grow, share with others, and mostly just have a bit of fun time again.

Past chapter officer of the Montana Wilderness Association, a group dedicated to protecting Montana's wilderness heritage, quiet beauty, and outdoor traditions.

Product Sponsorships

Great appreciation to Big Agnes, a company who says, "At our core, we want to inspire you to get outside and find the same appreciation for the backcountry we have."

Likewise, great appreciation to Prana for their Pro Deal. Prana is a progressive company supporting all things yoga, and most importantly-- in their words--"global goodness".

And similarly, great appreciation to Outdoor Research for their Pro Deal. OR's core values--certainly matching my own--include cultivating respect for each other and the planet, and growing through the challenge of journey.

And more--great appreciation to Montbell. How could you not like a company whose founder, Isamu Tatsuno, says that in his free time he can "often be found ... playing the Japanese flute" ?!

And appreciation to the good folks at Liberty Mountain, purveyors of "everything for the outdoors"!

Grateful acknowledgement for
past trip sponsorship from
Eureka tents, MountainSmith packs,
and Danner boots.

Great appreciation to Ibex Clothing for their Pro Deal. Ibex is a progressive company that creates highly functional, great looking outdoor clothing made of wool, a phenomenal natural fiber.

Academic Honors (ok, true, this goes way back!)

Member of Tau Beta Pi Association, the oldest engineering honor society in the United States. The association honors engineering students who have demonstrated a history of academic achievement, plus a commitment to personal and professional integrity.

Member of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, a group that recognizes superior scholarship and academic excellence without limitation to discipline.
