Growing up working on a farm on the Palouse, Cameron developed a deep appreciation for the connection between our land, our food, and our health. Through a varied career that has included time as a design engineer, a Six Sigma Black Belt, a software company executive, amongst other endeavors, Cameron never lost his connection to the land. For Cameron, joining the Non-GMO Project has been a deeply fulfilling full-circle connection with his roots.
Cameron has volunteered extensively for organizations operating in the sustainable food space, including serving on the Board of Directors of Tilth Alliance. While pursuing his MBA in Sustainable Business, Cameron co-founded FarmShare, a sharing economy platform for farmers to share equipment with each other. The intent of FarmShare was to reduce the capital costs of farming in order to help younger farmers enter the profession, thereby reducing the trend of farm consolidation and corporatization.
Bellingham was initially home to Cameron while he pursued his undergraduate degree at Western Washington University. Some years later, Cameron and his family returned to Bellingham from the buzzing tech hub of Seattle, seeking a greater sense of purpose and balance. Moving to Bellingham was a step closer to Cameron’s roots and a more intimate sense of community. Joining the Non-GMO Project brings that greater sense of purpose and balance into the professional realm, and Cameron is excited to bring his business and leadership experience to the organization.
