In late 2023, August joined the Camp Fire Alaska team. Born and raised in Anchorage, he is a dedicated advocate for Alaskan communities. A graduate of the University of California San Diego’s user experience design program, he applies his knowledge in data collection to create intuitive and easy-to-understand materials and systems. With a professional background in graphic design and production from his former role at a local ad agency, he has a skillset perfectly aligned to support Camp Fire Alaska’s decades-long mission. His pursuits include professional portrait and landscape photography, writing, classical singing, graphic design, and surrealist illustration. In his personal life, he and his mother are raising his two nephews – former Camp Fire Alaska attendees – and three dogs.

The Camp Fire Alaska main office operates on the ancestral land of the Dena’ina people. Camp Fire Alaska runs programing on the lands of the Athabascan, Yup’ik, Chup’ik, Sougpiaq, and Inupiaq peoples. We value and thank them for their current and historic commitment to and protection of this land. We pledge to assist, in partnership, in the environmental stewardship of these lands. We strive to learn more about the history of the Native peoples of Alaska and the historic trauma they have suffered. We commit to being an active ally through activities, actions, and organizational decisions and practices. We understand that this is a dynamic process through which our Land Acknowledgement practices, and statement will evolve as we receive feedback from tribal partners and acquire a deeper understanding of and from the Native peoples of Alaska.
