Welcome and thank you for visiting!
I am a Certified Wildlife Biologist and natural resource/NEPA planner living and working in north-central Idaho. I earned a BS in Wildlife Science from the University of Washington in 2003 and a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Idaho in 2009. My graduate work involved the behavioral ecology and population genetics of pronghorn in Yellowstone National Park.
North-central Idaho is an area of rolling grasslands, dense forests, clear rivers, deep canyons, and (a very few) glaciated peaks. Wildlife, plants, and nature generally are central interests in my life, and I hope the images here convey some of the beauty and diversity I see and enjoy in this part of the world.
