Jim serves as Colorado State Director for The Wilderness Society.

In this role he manages campaigns and programs across Colorado.

Prior to becoming Colorado State Director, Jim was an Outreach Manager for the Energy & Climate Campaign, where he worked to advance policies to reduce air pollution from the oil and gas industry and protect spectacular public lands. Prior to joining TWS in 2015, Jim was Executive Director of Citizens for a Healthy Community, a grassroots group in Western Colorado that works on oil and gas issues on public lands. 

Before coming to conservation advocacy, Jim worked for the Ohio legislature, providing fiscal and policy analysis to decision-makers on health and human services issues. Jim received his Master’s in Public Administration from The Ohio State University and his BA in Political Science from the University of Cincinnati.

Jim has developed a deep love for Colorado’s public lands and wilderness areas after growing up in Ohio and first visiting Colorado in 2005. In his spare time, you can find him hiking, backpacking, running, and taking pictures of Colorado’s spectacular places with his wife Lindsey and their dogs Jeffrey and Bunny Lebowski
