Board of Directors
I live in Colorado and enjoy frequent mountain hikes in the summer and skiing in the winter. After a long and successful career producing and directing a PBS series and then a series of business films for Fortune 500 companies, I decided to apply my filmmaking skills to making the world a better place.
Since completion of the documentary, GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth, I’ve been devoting more time to writing, public speaking, launching the media monitoring website, Growth Bias Busted in 2013, and the radio series, Conversation Earth in 2015.

My commitment to working for a sustainable future is grounded in my love of my children and my desire for them to enjoy rewarding lives. Over the course of a varied career this commitment has found expression in:
- persistent advocacy for clean, renewable energy;
- designing and building resource efficient and solar homes;
- the practice of environmental law with am emphasis in land conservation;
- grassroots organizing and providing technical assistance to public interest organizations.
These days my wife and I work toward a sustainable, local food system from our family farm in western Colorado. At Mesa Winds Farm we understand that healthy food begins with our stewardship of a healthy farm ecology. We are also committed to education: of ourselves, our helpers, and fellow farmers to better understand ways to work with nature and to grow the best fruit of which we are capable; of our customers, that they appreciate the importance of healthful foods in their lives and their role in this “revolution” in agriculture.
I wanted to become part of this project because of my passion for all things outdoors. I have an undergraduate degree from Dartmouth in Environmental Studies and a masters in environmental law and policy from Vermont Law School. I’m currently working on energy conservation programs for a utility in Boston. In my spare time I love to hike, backpack, camp, and snowboard. I’ve also tried caving, climbing, rafting, sea kayaking, waterskiing and wakeboarding. I also enjoy travel immensely. I’ve been to Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica and Belize in recent years.
