Natural Resources Defense Council
Areas of Expertise:
I am NRDC's legislative director. I work with NRDC staff to develop strategies for advancing environmental legislation and lobby Congress on behalf of the organization. Before joining NRDC, I was Vice-President of Government Affairs of the Environmental Technology Council representing companies that recycle, destroy, and dispose of regulated hazardous waste. Previously, I worked for the Senate Budget Committee on energy and environment issues and as the environmental aide to Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) when Lautenberg chaired the Subcommittee on Superfund and Hazardous Waste. I served as a counsel to the House Subcommittee on Water Resources and worked at the Environmental Protection Agency drafting some of the original regulations under the Clean Water Act. I have a B.A. in Political Science and a law degree from the State University at Buffalo.
