Alexander Escobedo joined Restore Oregon in February as our new part-time office manager. Alex, who works Monday through Thursday each week, replaces Denise Bartelt, who was a fixture for many years here, and will be missed.
Previously, Alex served as office manager at a conservation nonprofit where he oversaw the execution of a name change, an image update and the development of a new website. He has also worked in the consulting and land use fields in Northern California, providing logistical support for political candidates and ballot measures.
Alex says he found making the leap from conservation to preservation easy after witnessing the negative impact of infill in San Francisco, San Diego and – most recently – Portland.
Growing up, Alex assisted his father with the interior remodel of a 1930s Cape Cod house in his hometown of San Diego. He now lives in a 100-year-old Craftsman house at the foot of Mt. Tabor.
Alex holds degrees in economics and political science. When not working at Restore Oregon, he runs a small tech consulting business.
