“I used to play with the Seattle Quake Rugby team but nowadays support them off the field. I also am a huge supporter of Planned Parenthood and believe in everyone’s right to access and receive birth control and safe sex options. Currently however, when I am not working I am pursuing my Masters in Nonprofit Leadership at Seattle University.”

Before coming to GSBA, Tristen worked with the Environmental Protection Agency as an environmental scientist. He specialized in hazardous waste cleanups and enforcement. His favorite part of that job was working with and educating at-risk communities on the perils of environmental contaminants and assisting community members in ways that they and their families can feel safe.
