Jonah serves as a Senior Policy Advisor overseeing the Working Lands Roundtable, WGA’s natural resources policy platform. His policy portfolio includes land management, forestry, wildfire, and disaster preparedness. Jonah has also worked in other policy areas, including minerals, land transfers, and wild horses. Prior to joining WGA, Jonah worked as a woodworker at East by West Woodworking, a researcher at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and director at the State of the Rockies Project. Over the duration of his brief career, Jonah has worked for federal, state, and local governments as well as the non-profit sector.
Jonah grew up in Massachusetts and Vermont before eventually moving to Colorado, where he earned a B.A in Physics and Environmental Science from Colorado College. He went on to earn a Master’s in environmental policy from the University of Colorado Boulder. When he’s not at work, Jonah is most likely skiing and has been backcountry skiing every month in Colorado for nearly five years. He also likes to garden as much as he likes to cook and eat, and he is a regular at the weekly “Happy Thursday” cruiser bike ride in Boulder.
