AWPBioPic2As a Visiting Assistant Professor 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 policies aimed at making our world more environmentally sustainable and socially equitable. I also serve on the Board of Commissioners for the Housing Authority of the City of Ventura, and volunteer on the Steering Committee of the Ventura County Leadership Academy.
