About me 
Brian is the California and Klamath Director for Trout Unlimited. He manages more than 20 TU staff members in California and Oregon working to protect, reconnect, restore and sustain California’s trout and salmon streams.

Before law school, Brian was the Communications Director at the White House Council on Environmental Quality from 1993-97, and he was the co-creator and manager of EPA’s first “Energy Star” initiative from 1991-93.
