Pronouns: he/him

Reeves Erickson graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 2014 with a degree in Science, Technology & Society and a minor in Biology. His environmental interests culminated in writing his senior thesis on the effect of public opinion on the growth of wind energy in the United States and the European Union. Upon graduating, he worked as an English teacher abroad in Vietnam and Spain. Reeves later worked for the Columbia Corridor Association in Portland, Oregon as a program manager. He wrote grants for diesel emission reductions, managed the Groundwater Protection Program, and facilitated community engagement. More recently, he worked as a backcountry ranger at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden where he educated visitors about local California ecosystems.

Reeves' experiences inspired him to pursue a Masters in Environmental Science and Management at Bren and he plans to complete the Energy and Climate specialization. He intends to acquire insight into strategies for policy-making and carbon emissions reduction methods. After Bren, Reeves hopes to work in renewable energy program development.
