Distribution and Operations Coordinator

Chad is responsible for coordinating the printing, folding, cutting, addressing and sealing of all Wilderness Committee materials produced in-house. Chad works from the unceded Coast Salish Territories. He worked as a carpenter before becoming a canvasser, then the national canvass director for the Wilderness Committee and is now the distributions and operations coordinator. He came by his love of nature honestly as his mother was an environmental activist arrested in Clayoquot Sound in the 90s. He grew up in Squamish, an old logging town that was quickly turning into an eco-tourism hub. Listening to punk bands talk about environmental protection brought Chad’s two passions together and he set out to find a way to bring permanent protection to the wild places he loves.
