Jeff joined the organization in January of 2023. As a born and raised New Mexican with a love of the outdoors, Jeff brings to his work a passion for protecting our state’s public land. After graduating from Los Lunas High School, Jeff pursued a bachelor’s of History at the University of New Mexico, deepening his appreciation for our rich cultural tapestry and connection to place.
After college, he left to live in the rivers of the west. Here, he began his journey as a writer all the while being known as the most gregarious guide on the water. Now as a reformed fishing guide, Jeff is applying his love of words and writing at CVNM Education Fund. Here he advocates for the New Mexican wilderness and the people who are its shareholders.
