Born and raised in Milwaukee, Nathan moved to San Francisco in December of 2007. As a teenager Nathan was watching the Battle of The Bay in 1989 on TV and it left a lasting impression of life in earthquake country. While researching the liquefaction potential of various neighborhoods to call home, Nathan discovered a way to combine community involvement and resilience by completing his first NERT training in 2009. He is currently a co-coordinator for the NOPA neighborhood and really enjoys
the opportunities to strengthen the skills of fellow NERT volunteers by teaching supplementary NERT classes. Nathan works at the University of San Francisco, focused on producing memorable alumni engagement opportunities, from large on-campus presidential events to off-campus events large and small. Nathan also enjoys finding continuous improvement opportunities and building solutions and standards at work and in life.
