I connect people to nature. 

As a Certified Ecologist (Ecological Society of America) and a Certified Fisheries Professional (American Fisheries Society), I have worked and published on the topics of watershed planning, fisheries ecology, endangered species recovery, and conservation policy. I have directed fisheries field crews of up to 13 people surveying cold-water (trout) and warm-water (bass) streams and rivers. I also work directly on policy issues pertaining to sustainable food systems, water quality, fisheries, and endangered species. 

Please explore my website further and contact me if my passion for learning and scientific exploration can be of assistance to you.
