Originally from St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, I joined Point Blue as a volunteer at the Palomarin Field Station in 1991 and have worked on a wide array of Point Blue projects in many roles since then, from California to Alaska and Antarctica. As Chief Science Officer, I am responsible for overall leadership and coordination of Point Blue's scientific activities. I have a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Auckland and a BA in English from Cornell University. I am a practicing ecologist with expertise in evaluating climate change impacts on wildlife and human populations, as well as bio-informatics.

I live in San Francisco with my wife and two children, and work primarily from our Petaluma headquarters. My favorite hobbies are reading, mountain biking, sailing, climbing, skiing and scuba diving.
