MANAGING DIRECTOR of
THE ARCTIC ENCOUNTER SYMPOSIUM
A life-long Alaskan, Cale was raised in Anchorage, Alaska. A recent graduate of Georgetown University's Walsh School of Foreign Service where he earned a degree in International Economics, Cale currently lives in Girdwood, Alaska.
Cale has worked previously for U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski in various capacities, most recently serving as the Policy Director for the Senator's successful 2016 re-election campaign. In 2010, he served as an intern on the Senator's historic write-in campaign and as a college intern in Congress. Cale has also served as an intern on the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and for two summers in the Senator's Anchorage district office. Additionally, in the spring of 2015, Cale worked side by side with Senator Murkowski and her staff to facilitate and support the creation of the U.S. Senate Arctic Caucus, which remains active and in effect on capitol hill today.
During his time at Georgetown, Cale focused his studies and research on development economics, energy economics, and the intersection of these two policy areas. This led him to spend three months working on a research trial in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania with the Georgetown University Initiative on Innovation, Development, and Evaluation. Cale will soon continue his studies by attending the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies pursuing a Masters degree in International Economics and Finance in 2017.
Cale has always been fascinated by the beauty and opportunity of the Arctic. He has been fortunate to travel throughout the Arctic region. Cale served previously as the Outreach Director for the 2015 Arctic Encounter Paris and the 2016 Arctic Encounter Seattle. In addition to his current role as Managing Director of the Arctic Encounter, Cale serves as a Partner with Kallander & Associates LLC.
