ROB ELAM

My work is focused on projects that embody ideals of sustainability, high quality of life, and healthy communities. Specific areas of interest include climate change and carbon economics, clean air, water & healthy ecosystems, data & applied technologies, organizational optimization, fairness, equity, utility, incrementalism and simplicity.

I’m a believer in and advocate for wilderness, and a steelhead flyfisher.
