Living in the Puget Sound area where aquatic and other natural resources are prevalent, Conor has discovered great interest in the relationships between these resource systems and the continual development of urban centers. He is interested in sustainable growth of communities as well as the sustainable management of natural resources. His plans are to one day work in tandem with state agencies such as WDFW and city governments to plan growth and management strategies which will be beneficial for all involved. In his free time, Conor enjoys getting outdoors and away from the city, usually by means of fishing trips. He also enjoys a good cup of coffee and a warm stack of pancakes on a rainy Washington day.
