AWPBioPic2As a faculty member at California Lutheran University I seek to develop our understanding of public policy and sustainability through academic research, writing, and teaching. As a consultant I work with communities and organizations to develop and implement policies and programs aimed at making our world more environmentally sustainable and socially equitable. I also volunteer on the Steering Committee of the Ventura County Leadership Academy and was appointed by City Council as a Board Commissioner on the Housing Authority of the City of San Buenaventura.
