Staff & Interns
Nana is TSRC's executive director. After running TSRC as a facilitator for five years, she accepted the official position as director in 2007. She has kept order (for the most part) as the organization has grown, moved, and morphed into what it is today. She also hasn't worn shoes in the office for approximately 10 summers now...
Rory, TSRC's assistant director, is a graduate of Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and TSRC's second longest-serving employee. He handles administrative duties year-round and manages operations during the summer months. If you are a TSRC participant, he has probably written you an email (or five) about your lodging. If you'd rather speak Spanish than English, he's your man.
Jake has been on the TSRC scene almost as long as Rory, assisting scientists in the summer months when not studying classics at Union College in upstate New York. Jake is well versed in all TSRC operations, and serves as the Tech Director and Business Manager during the summer months. Albeit a bit accident prone, he has an abiding interest in soccer, film, ancient comedies, and Latin. Vivat TSRC!
Beth's father claims she skipped her first words and instead started with full sentences. Her gift for gab is matched by a sharp wit and piles of charm. Beth joins TSRC as our host of the summer weekly Town Talk and part-time staffer, bringing with her years of experience as program director of the Telluride Historical Museum and local energizer bunny.
The TSRC Team
Dave Johnson, Graphic Designer, Ice Design
After passing the good neighbor test by lifting iron sculptures out of Nana's car for a Pinhead Institute art and science project (a chance encounter), Dave has since become the official graphic designer for TSRC. He has done virtually every type of design for the organization, from the creation of its logo to posters, from brochures to the website. Dave started Ice Design (www.icedesign.com) in Telluride; previously he owned Heat in Scottsdale, AZ.
