Bill is currently wrapping up an MS in Environmental Sciences and Policy at Northern Arizona University focused on watershed science and GIS. He originally received a B.A. in Economics and a B.A. in Environmental Sciences with a concentration in hydrology at the University of Virginia. Falling in love with rivers early on while growing up in West Virginia, to date he has worked as whitewater guide across the US and India. Between seasons in California, Montana, and Arizona, Bill has called central Colorado home on and off for the last decade. He is familiar with many of the region’s conservation and environmental issues through work with watershed groups in Crested Butte and Eagle County. In addition to current projects with the Roaring Fork Conservancy, Bill works for Lotic Hydrological LLC. and serves as a Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator with the Eagle River Watershed Council.
