Hi there! I'm a consultant biologist living in Ventura County.

I'm a graduate of Humboldt State University with a B.S. in Wildlife Biology as well as the Exotic Animal Training and Management from Moorpark College’s “EATM” program, and am currently looking applying to a graduate level study. I have conducted field work throughout California, and also have professional experience in zookeeping, habitat restoration, wildlife camera trapping, public education and outreach, skeleton articulation and bone cleaning, and backpacking and survival skills. I'm especially interested in American black bears having spent a summer in Yosemite National Park working with the Bear Management Team, and assisted in a black bear genetics study for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in the Angeles National Forest. I love the incredible diversity of California’s flora and fauna and have a particular passion for urban ecology and human/ wildlife conflict resolution.

Please check out the "Bears of Southern California" project that I created:
