Ash has spent his entire adult career focused on service in one form or another. Whether it was as a volunteer supporting environmental education programs, being "Stinky Campy" as program staff for a children's oncology camp or helping hundreds of organizations learn how to better leverage technology to create change in their own communities. Ash's focus on the human side of any issue first has allowed him be part of variety of wonderful organizations and projects over the past 20+ years.

After spending nearly 13 years in Portland Oregon he moved to Southern Oregon where the proximity to mountains and smaller towns felt a bit more like Montana where he grew up. Outside of work Ash enjoys doing almost anything outdoors with his family and friends. From mountain biking and camping to just throwing rocks in a stream with his kids.
