Brooke created the vision for TSI and has driven it though to reality. Before starting TSI Brooke was Sonoma County’s Deputy District Attorney; with a focus on environmental and California State Fish and Game violations. He has been on the Marin County Wildlife and Fisheries Advisory Commission for over 15 years and Commission chairperson from 1994 to 1998. He is currently a member of the Board of Directors of the SF Tyee Foundation and has served as president and vice president of the Tyee Club, and was participating in Club activities since age 8. Brooke is currently a member of the California Fish and Game Recreational Abalone Advisory Commission. From 2003 to 2006 he was on the board of the Tiburon Audubon Leadership Council (a chapter of the National Audubon Society), and from 2006 to now he is an ex-officio member of the Romberg Center. He is an advisor for the United Angles of Casa Grande (a nationally recognized creek restoration program in Petaluma, CA). Since 2006 Brooke has taught salmon related programs as an unpaid volunteer in four local grade schools for more than 60 hours each year. He organized and directed the May salmon release events where over 1,200 children released 2,000 salmon into the bay and coordinated the October salmon release at the Romberg Center for more than 1,000 school children. He has built strong connections within state and federal environmental agencies and a strong local support base to carryout these efforts. Brooke is a native of Tiburon; growing up among community leaders, commercial fishermen, small business owners, school teachers, entrepreneurs and professionals. He grew up fishing and caring for wildlife and the local environment.
