Northern Sierra Program Leader
I am an ecologist that leads applied research and monitoring in meadow and upland habitats to assess the ecological effects and benefits of management and restoration in the Sierra Nevada and California Cascades. I have keen interests in wildlife-habitat associations; the ecology of meadows, riparian areas, and forests and their restoration; climate adaptation; avian populations and migratory connectivity.
I received a B.S. in Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology from the University of California, Davis, and an M.S. in Wildlife Natural Resources from Humboldt State University. My education focused on aquatic ecology from the perspective of fish and upland habitat ecology from the perspective of birds.
Before arriving at Point Blue, I worked on research projects throughout the U.S. on a broad range of topics in avian ecology, including riparian conservation, forest management, endangered species conservation, energy development, demography, and migration ecology.
My primary office and home are in Woodland, CA. My preferred and secondary office is the beautiful Sierra Nevada. When not working I relish my roles as father and husband. My hobbies include bird watching, cooking, gardening, fishing, and adventuring in the great outdoors.
