Before joining Transect, Simon worked for the U.S. Senate, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and the Northwest Straits Commission to advance a wide range of issues, including ocean policy, renewable energy R&D, and citizen-driven environmental conservation. He takes pride in crafting compelling stories that deliver impact for Transect’s partners. Like Faith, Simon is at home in the field with earlier careers as an archaeologist and marine outreach specialist, instilling a love for the natural world and a high tolerance for being dirty, cold, and wet.
