Born and raised in Northern New Mexico, Teo grew up hiking and fishing in the mountains and streams of the southwest. An early interest in Edward Abbey’s writing during a series of family backpacking trips in Utah combined with an odd fascination with renewable energy policy in high school kick-started his trajectory. Teo completed his graduate work at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at UC-Santa Barbara as a Doris Duke Conservation Fellow. Throughout his career, Teo has engaged in diverse efforts including managing youth and educator outreach efforts, conducting state-level assessments of long-range planning efforts, and has lead research for university labs, consultants and international NGO’s on topics including climate change adaptation, ecosystem services and ecological networks. Combining a clear-eyed approach to problem solving with a knack for identifying cutting edge trends and approaches he strives to work towards the healthy integration of natural systems and human communities at multiple scales.
