Jack joined MITA’s staff in the summer of 2014. He moved to Maine from New Haven, CT, where he led fund development at Solar Youth, a local environmental education nonprofit, and Public Allies CT, a leadership and nonprofit apprenticeship program. Jack holds an MPA from New York University and BA from Colby College and currently serves on the board of the Portland Parks Conservancy. Jack’s passion for Maine’s wild islands was nurtured from an early age; for nearly every summer of his life, he has camped with his family on an undeveloped island in Merchant’s Row off Stonington. He’s thrilled to now be living in Maine full-time and experiencing regular outdoor adventures with his wife and two young children.
