Prior to joining OCF, Comet spent ten years in youth work and environmental education, and his work at OCF reflects this same commitment to fostering a healthy world of engaged citizens. Comet started in 2012 supporting OCF's donor advised funds before joining the scholarships and education team in 2018. Comet is proud to work closely with OCF's scholarship donors and volunteers to support access to education for Oregon students, and to be a part of a number of OCF's statewide educational grant programs. Comet also loves to discover unfamiliar and unusual music and explore the outdoors with his wife and dog.
