Before teaching, I spent time working as a field biologist. Some of my assignments were working in a fishery’s health lab monitoring hatchery fish, banding migratory waterfowl and doing stream surveys throughout the state of Oregon.

Away from Skyview, I spend most of my time with my wife and two kids. We enjoy traveling and watching the kids play sports.
