Johnny works and lives for outdoor adventure, a drive that leads him to travel the world with a backpack from Northern volcanoes to scuba diving in the Red Sea. As a Research Lead at Earth Economics, Johnny specializes in holistic economic analyses of public spaces, river systems, and the outdoor industry. He works to assess the impact of policy, management, and business decisions by using economic tools such as input-output modeling and benefit-cost analysis. His work has resulted in providing local, state, and national park systems with the tools needed to quantify the social, environmental, and economic benefits of public spaces. His experience working with tribes, business groups, and all levels of government, allows Johnny to leverage his findings with diverse communities and decision makers.
