Lexi Tuddenham moved to Telluride in 2007 after two years in Chinese cities left her homesick for the American West. She moved away briefly to pursue a master’s degree in environmental management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, where she focused on environmental justice, social ecology and sustainable resource management. Prior to Yale, she studied biology at Harvard, worked in international conservation and development in China and with the dZi Foundation in Nepal, and taught environmental education in the Southwest. She is now the executive director of Sheep Mountain Alliance, Telluride’s homegrown conservation group.
Lexi has worked for Mountainfilm in various capacities for nearly 10 years, serving most recently as a screening committee member, and is thrilled to be able to share fantastic films with audiences everywhere.
