Todd Hunsdorfer – Sustainable Business Coordinator
Where are you from?: I’m from the South Coast of Massachusetts, a small town called Marion.
What were you doing before you came to ECOSS?: Before I started at ECOSS I was earning a Master’s Degree From Antioch University Seattle, and working as the volunteer coordinator for Seattle’s Green Festival.
What do you do day-to-day at work?: My daily work at ECOSS involves responding to phone calls from businesses about their stormwater management. I also spend a considerable amount of time reaching out to local businesses who have recently been visited by a regulatory agency. My role is to help these places get back into environmental compliance.
What has been your favorite/most rewarding project to work on at ECOSS?: It has been really rewarding to work with other people who care as much about their jobs as I do.
If you could change one thing about Seattle, what would it be?: The temperature of the water. I can’t ever go swimming without having a heart attack!
Favorite spot in South Park?: The Softball field at the community center. I’ve been lucky enough to make some good memories out there with the South Park River Ratz.
What do you like to do outside the office?: I spend a lot of time developing an emergency food relief program for Seattle food banks. It’s called South Park Fresh Starts. I grow vegetable plant starts for food bank clients, and distribute them with educational materials on producing hyper-local, nutritious food.
Biggest goal for 2010?: I’m getting married in August!
