With good research, planning, and luck, I’ve been able to visit, work, and live in many spectacular places in North America. Over the span of my career I have gathered a true sense of why we should continue to protect our cultural and natural treasures.

I’m always in an enjoyable pursuit of historical, contemporary, and scientific knowledge to carefully shape a bright future for myself and my family. Understanding a full spectrum of the natural world empowers me to be a good citizen of our planet, a patient teacher to others, and a continual student of science.
