His career has primarily centered in the educational and non-profit sectors involving topics like food insecurity, environmental justice, and grassroots activism. He hopes to expand his career into restoration ecology, with a focus on bioremediation and rewilding.

As an undergraduate at UNT Dallas, Hunter served as a public health researcher for Community Basket Mobile Farmers Market, a university program tackling food insecurity in southern Dallas, Texas using GIS and fresh food donations. He also became the Statistical Support Assistant to the university’s public health program coordinator, who focused his research on novel tobacco usage among minors. His research in both positions resulted in two peer-reviewed publications by graduation. 

Beginning in late 2020, Hunter lived between Dallas and Alajuela, Costa Rica for 3 years. He briefly attended Universidad Veritas for ecological storytelling and interned with Geoporter Costa Rica as a conservation programming assistant in Bahía Ballena. During his time in Costa Rica, Hunter developed his passion for nature and wildlife photography, visual storytelling, and tropical ecology. He also interned remotely for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and the Center for Health, Environment & Justice (CHEJ).

CHEJ later hired him as a Community Organizer & Communications Coordinator, which launched him into environmental justice. In this role, he helped teach budding grassroots groups how to organize and fight back against polluters. He also learned how to clearly communicate the complexities of environmental justice to the layperson. Apart from organizing, Hunter helped create a cohesive brand identity and designed or produced much of the organization's web content. 

Outside of work, Hunter is a volunteer camera operator for the Dallas Nature Channel, a teammate in the Dallas Chapter of the Sunrise Movement, and offers a helping hand for the Refugee Services for Texas. He also freelances as a photographer and UX/UI designer.
