Bio: Hi, I’m Ted. I was born in New Mexico, grew up in Oregon, and have spent most my professional life in Seattle. I have also had several stints working in Latin America and/or living out of my backpack wandering aimlessly through Latin America.
Professionally I have seven years of experience in the nonprofit sector working for an immigrant rights group in Oregon, Habitat for Humanity, running a food bank, and with a community development nonprofit in Guatemala. I am currently interning with King County Housing Authority.
I also love volunteering, but have struggled to find the time during grad school.
After Evans I hope to work in Latin America with a US based development nonprofit or return to the food banking world. My big career aspiration is to be the Executive Director of a medium to large sized nonprofit.
For fun I like jigsaw puzzles, board games, hiking, snowboarding, scuba diving, basketball, podcasts, reading way-too-big books, road trips, and travelling as much as possible. Seattle breweries are pretty awesome too.
Why did you choose Evans?: Let’s be real, the price of attending Evans for the quality of education we get here beats any other program in the country. Besides that, Seattle is awesome, the Evans community is tight and super supportive, and all your classmates a smart, very interesting people.
