Michael oversees our work to protect and restore the rivers of Washington state.

Michael joined American Rivers in 2000, working out of our Washington, D.C. headquarters on our campaign to restore the Snake River and its salmon. He moved back home to the Puget Sound area in 2003 to work out of our Seattle office — where he continues to work on Columbia-Snake River issues among others. Prior to that he was a law clerk for the Washington State Court of Appeals and a legal intern for the Sierra Club.
