Todd Barnell joined ITEP on August 12, 2002. He currently manages our programs dealing with solid waste management, source reduction, brownfields and other contaminated sites, USTs, and emergency response.
Todd was born and raised in Indiana and attended Indiana University, where he obtained a BA in Journalism in 1992 and a BA in Geography in 1999. He has worked as an industrial welder, public relations specialist for the IU School of Music's Opera Theater, and an assistant researcher on a global climate change study (part of the AmeriFlux CO2 monitoring project) in Bloomington, Indiana.
In 1999, Todd and his partner, along with their two cats, moved to Flagstaff. His first job here was as a seasonal researcher for the Ecological Restoration Institute at NAU. In 2000, he was hired by the local office of The Nature Conservancy, where he worked until he was offered his current position by ITEP.
When not on the job, Todd enjoys cooking, birding, listening to bagpipes, and reading just about anything he can get his hands on. He can't wait until the next opportunity arises for him to spend some time near the ocean, watching pelicans soar above the waves.
