Fellow Bio:

Hello! My name is Pablo Ortiz, and I’m excited to join this year’s CivicSpark cohort! I graduated Brown University in 2018 with a degree in Biology, and recently finished a two-year stint working with the CA Department of Pesticide Regulation. I’m looking forward to learning about California’s Tribal communities and water resiliency issues, as well as building and applying skills in GIS and education. In my free time, I enjoy playing the guitar, doing crosswords and sudokus, and following the NBA and Premier League.
