Devin works to spread the story of American Rivers work and successes to our members, corporate supporters and others through publications such as the American Rivers magazine, reports, and the annual report and through our website and online outreach. He also helps find ways for American Rivers to work with corporations to advance river restoration and protection.
Devin joined American Rivers in 2009. Previously, he worked in communications with several nonprofit and government agencies. Devin worked with Oceana in their South American headquarters in Santiago, Chile, to help the oceans that receive all the rivers he now works to protect. While there, Devin performed his thesis research on how newspapers in Santiago were covering climate change.
Before that, Devin interned and worked with several government agencies including the Office of the President, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. He has worked with his hometown newspaper The Red Bay News for the past 15 years, where he still has a weekly column.
