Interests: I grew up running around the woods and mountains of northern NH. My interests personally and professionally still reflect that history. Professionally, I am interested in maintaining healthy, intact ecosystems and wildlife populations. This includes addressing human dimensions of conservation, including sustainable use, environmental contamination, and invasive species management. We are in a crucial time to develop sustainable funding sources for wildlife conservation that requires engaging diverse stakeholders. I spend my free time hiking, climbing, hunting, camping, and generally trying to get lost in the woods with my dogs and wife.
