Jon Bonkoski

Senior Director of Coastal Communities

At Ecotrust I lead and support a team working to catalyze economic transformation in coastal communities. Working collaboratively with staff from California to Southeast Alaska, I engage partners to co-develop projects in fisheries, food systems, aquaculture, and tribal stewardship. I also co-lead our software development team. Together, we develop open-source software that enables knowledge sharing to form a common understanding of complex situations while supporting better decision-making processes. In my personal time, I enjoy cycling, snowboarding, fishing, canoeing, birdwatching, and spending time with my family. Go Portland Trail Blazers!!
