Don quite possibly has more experience in rural resources than anyone else in the Silver State. A writer for G8, longtime journalist, and highly experienced public relations practitioner, Don has a background as an economic recovery coordinator with the Western Nevada Development District, with the Great Basin Regional Development Authority, managing federal grants and local government,and promoting outdoor perspectives to targeted audiences. Whew. He’s a master of strategic planningand only begrudgingly admits that working with the Flying Elvi (a team of skydiving Elvis impersonators) was a career highlight.
Don is a graduate of San Jose State University and is a local expert in river flood control and riparian management policy.
