Water has long been at the center of my life, from working as a river guide in western North America as a young man to protecting receiving waters from urban development. For the past 20 years I have studied and furthered the knowledge of green stormwater infrastructure locally, nationally and internationally. Over the past decade I’ve focused on developing high-performance filter media that will capture a broad spectrum of stormwater pollutants and, importantly, protect aquatic organisms. This has been a challenging, long-term pursuit…we are close.
