Some of his clients include The Conservation Fund, The Pew Charitable Trusts, Outdoor Photographer, WNC Magazine, Mountain Bike Magazine, REI, Royal Robbins, LL Bean, The Lyndhurst Foundation, Wild South, Southern Appalachian Forest Coalition and The Southern Environmental Law Center; among others.
