IT Consultant, retired
Steve comes to the Board with extensive experience as a business owner and manager, as a consultant who succeeded in solving problems and getting things done and as a skilled systems thinker who is capable of finding and expressing key points and issues to help move processes forward. An active supporter of several land conservation organizations in Colorado where he lived for 25 years, Steve sought out the Jefferson Land Trust soon after arriving in Port Townsend, and he has been actively involved ever since — as a donor, as a member of the Conservation Projects Committee and now as a board member.
Steve’s particular passion is the work the Land Trust has undertaken in support of conserving working lands for sustainable agriculture. A life-long “scratch” cook and trained chef, Steve is very concerned about the quality and preservation of our foodshed, and he feels the Jefferson Land Trust is doing important and innovative work in that direction.
