B.A., Washington and Lee University


Brian is a Masters' student in Environmental Studies program (Values & Theory core). After undergraduate study in History and Political Science at Washington and Lee University, Brian went into the weird world of Western water, as a project manager restoring and protecting Colorado watersheds from the effects of legacy mining and wildland fire. His current research is especially interested in the economic and cultural impacts when we change the use and location of water, primarily transfers from small agricultural communities to thriving municipalities. You can often find Brian summiting tall peaks and descending deep canyons in the spectacular American West, or out enjoying the sights and sounds of Boulder.
