Beau uplifts the triumphs of MEC, the triumphs of its members and the impact environmental legislation has on Michigan and its residents. He tells stories and makes policy’s personal impact easy to understand.
The Richmond resident joined MEC in March 2020 after serving as an award-winning community reporter and lifestyle magazine writer for Leader Publications in Niles, Michigan. Among the issues he covered were a $1 billion natural gas plant’s construction, efforts to improve the Dowagiac River’s health and a bloom of marijuana businesses.
While Beau’s hometown is in the Blue Water Area, his second home is Albion, Michigan. There, he received a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and a concentration in public policy from Albion College. He also interned for the city’s economic development corporation and was editor-in-chief of the college’s award-winning student-run news publication.
Now, Beau may be found running on the Macomb Orchard Trail, walking to Starr Craft Brewery and reading on his family's front porch.
