Tykee leads the Government Relations team’s work on equitable access to the benefits of nature.

Tykee previously worked at the National Audubon Society, where he served on the government affairs team. He organized bird walks with members of Congress (in-district) and congressional staff (on the hill). He focused on bird conservation, water, coastal, and climate policy strategies.  Starting in his hometown of Philadelphia, PA, Tykee was introduced to birding as a job and a responsibility to build trust, power, and coalition to create meaningful change.  He has grown professionally as an advocate for equitable access to nature and affirming the fundamental right to political, economic, cultural, and environmental self-determination of all peoples.  

Tykee is left-handed, loves to cook, and has been dancing salsa and bachata since 2006.
