We are an ambitious bunch. Scientists and storytellers, inventors and analysts, technologists, tinkerers, bushwhackers, and big thinkers. We make maps and software apps, manage forests and investment funds, connect local farmers and fishermen with local eaters. And we convene communities around ideas that matter. Learn more about our team here, and find opportunities to work with us.

Born and raised in Bhutan, living in the Northwest since 2007. Every day is an adventure for me. There’s not a day where I haven’t learned something about people, culture, or new activities. Love traveling, seeking adventure, and having a chilled microbrew on a hot summer days near the Washougal river cliff jump.
