Author BruceB

Bruce has a B.A. from Wake Forest in Philosophy and Environmental Studies, and a Masters in Environmental Planning from Georgia Tech. He has been with Burton since the beginning of 2017 as the company’s first Sustainability Specialist. Bruce is driven by the idea that “waste” is human invention that is found nowhere else in nature and that it can and should be prevented throughout our economy. But he is also interested in energy and water, and how they combine with waste to form the nexus of sustainability. Outside of work, Bruce serves on two non-profit boards and is active in the local Atlanta community of sustainability professionals. At home he lives with his wife Tayllor, two dogs, and one cat – he secretly loves his cat, Beansprout, the most. On the weekends he can usually be found at the lake or somewhere else outdoors with his dog Salem (a husky), or playing board games with friends when it’s rainy or cold.
