Steve is a Venture Partner at Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, supporting a number of its portfolio organizations as a board member.
He is the co-founder of Earth Genome – which is developing the first global information platform on ecosystem services and natural capital. The goal is to guide better decision-making on sustainability in the private and public sectors.
Prior to starting Earth Genome Steve served as President of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and led the Foundation through the development of new strategies in a number of programs, including Environmental Conservation.
Before leading the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Steve worked at The Nature Conservancy for 32 years, the last 6 as its President and CEO.
Steve has served on the boards of the California Academy of Sciences, Sustainable Conservation, U.C. Berkeley College of Natural Resources, and the California Wildlife Officers Foundation.
Perhaps most impressive is that Steve has been on the forefront of treating nature as an asset vital to the health and well-being of every one of us.
