I am the Chief Technology Officer at Point Blue, managing the Point Blue Data Solutions efforts since joining in 2007. I oversee all web and database development, including the California Avian Data Center, our extensive avian data repositories, and many Point Blue hosted websites and applications.

Prior to coming to Point Blue, I spent over 20 years in software development, working most recently at Intuit on Quicken online products for consumers. I helped to build Autodesk's GIS Market Group, and worked at ESRI as a member of the Arc/Info development team and developing custom applications.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, and a Masters of Landscape Architecture from University of California at Berkeley.

When I'm not working on a new web application, you might find me tending my olive orchard or backpacking in the Sierras.
