Tristan Powell

Assistant Program Officer - Agriculture Systems Technical Support Unit, Mercy Corps


I connect with WorldOregon because: I believe that Oregonians benefit from exchanging ideas with and learning from cultures different from our own. 

Other places I have worked: I have worked in Germany, South Korea, Ghana, and Rwanda. 

My favorite place to be: Either on the water sailing or camping somewhere in the wilderness of the Northwest. 

I am most proud of: When I was in the Peace Corps I won a grant to build a mechanized borehole in my village, giving 2,000 people access to clean water.
