Cameron is one of BPC’s newest hires, joining our team in February 2022. As a 2021 graduate of the University of San Diego with a BA in Political Science, he is well-informed on recent public policy issues and current government affairs with a focus on California politics. While attending USD, Cameron spent most of his free time organizing service trips with a California-based NGO to various countries in South America to provide medical and housing assistance, which jumpstarted his passion for policies that protect disadvantaged communities.

Growing up in California’s Central Valley surrounded by the agriculture and commodity industries, his background provides a valuable perspective to the BPC team. Aware of the importance of the Bay Area as the main connection of the Central Valley to broader markets through goods movement, Cameron is excited to assist BPC members through advocacy efforts that encourage economic viability and adaptation.

Before joining BPC, Cameron worked in water policy at Merced Irrigation District, which controls a main reservoir connected to the San Joaquin River in the Central Valley. This exposure to the world of water politics in the Bay-Delta Watershed serves as a motivating factor for Cameron’s interest in sustainability efforts, as the effects of climate change directly impact water availability in the state.
