Bend Engagement Organizer
Sam joined the OLCV as an Engagement Organizer in the summer of 2022, after sitting on the Deschutes County Leadership Committee for the last two years. He grew up in Colorado, spending much of his childhood camping, skiing, hiking, and biking with his family across the Colorado Rockies. After graduating from Western Colorado University with a degree in Business Administration/Environment & Sustainability, he decided to venture out to Oregon, landing in Bend. Most recently, Sam worked on a successful congressional primary race as a Campaign Coordinator, and now is bringing his skills to the OLCV, to help elect environmental champions to Oregon offices. Sam loves to read, play chess, and continue his passions for outside recreation.
