Burg analyzes economic opportunities for the Territory of American Samoa and coordinates the development and implementation of essential economic plans such as the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies (CEDS). The CEDS outlines the five-year economic outlook for American Samoa and allows eligibility for Economic Development Administration (EDA) funding. Burg is a key point of contact for all of EDA’s grants and activities. He has been spearheading the oversight and management responsibilities of the Economic Development Revolving Loan Program with the Development Bank of American Samoa, which is a gap-financing resource for new and existing small businesses. In his other capacity, Burg identifies and secures funding for government-sponsored economic development projects through multiple grant opportunities.

Burg is an avid paddler and is a member of the Le Vasa Canoe Amerika Samoa Paddling Club that competes nationally and regionally. He is also a board member of the Lion’s Club of Pago Pago, where he has been a member since 2016. He enjoys fundraising and volunteering for the Lion’s annual eye and dental clinic as well as their other community development projects.

Burg attended Beloit College in Wisconsin and was a first-generation student. He graduated on May 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Economics and returned to serve the people of American Samoa soon after.
