Joe leads the campaign team, helping to put together, coordinate and carry out strategies for winning our nature-protection campaigns. He supports planning and ensuring the continued financial viability and growth of the Wilderness Committee. Joe was the organization's first employee back in the 80s. He loves working at the Wilderness Committee because it lets him create the changes he wants to see in the world. Other perks of the job include working with all the awesome people at the organization and those he gets to meet along the way, working with First Nation communities on various projects, and visiting the wild places. Before becoming Wilderness Committee’s Co-Executive Director, Joe worked at a chicken hatchery, owned a Dairy Queen, and was a campaigner and the National Campaign Director. In his free time, Joe goes off-trail backpacking, using a modern handheld GPS and lightweight equipment to explore BC’s wild west-coast jungles. He also enjoys exploring the wild nature of Southeast Asia – the region where his wife was born.
