Who We Are
We’re a diverse community of talented change-makers who believe that every American should have clean, running water for life.
Founder, Executive Director
George has a simple goal: to change the way people think about water. He built DIGDEEP to defend access to clean water as a basic human right.
Director for People and Places
Tawny is a first generation American with a love for storytelling and development. She also has a killer laugh, which is why she’s in charge of DIGDEEP’s partnerships and events.
American Projects Director
Emma is a Navajo artist and activist. Growing up, her grandparents didn’t have running water or electricity. She’s a native warrior princess with a dog/sidekick named Cindy Sherman and she runs our projects in the US.
Annie Begay grew up in Thoreau, NM, the headquarters of our Navajo Water Project. Annie’s a volunteer firefighter, a fixer of just about anything, and a total boss. She coordinates our work in the field.
Navajo Water Project Superintendent
Alfonso is from Baca, NM. He grew up without running water or electricity, which is why the Navajo Water Project is so important to him. He’s a California-bred Dodgers fan (and so are his kids!)
