Location: California
Trevor brings six years of dedicated nonprofit Salesforce, as well as eight years of general Salesforce administration and development experience to Cloud for Good.  When he first used Salesforce in 2008 he realized the potential that the platform could bring to an organization.  He became a Certified Administrator, brought countless improvements to the nonprofits where he worked, and gave presentations to groups of nonprofits about Salesforce whenever the opportunity arose, which included a nonprofit-focused Dreamforce session in 2014. When he’s off the clock, Trevor builds computers for fun, plays a fair amount of video and board games, writes fan fiction, and enjoys going out with his wife and daughter for trips in and around the Bay Area.
