I have had a life-long love of science, teaching, and the outdoors, so I'm very happy to serve as a Volunteer Naturalist. Geology was my first field of study. My working career included software development, leading a small educational nonprofit, and teaching high school science. I served as a Boy Scout leader and robotics coach, and hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. In 2019 my wife and I retired and moved from Ann Arbor to Longmont.

I grew up outside of Tucson, exploring the Sonoran Desert including Baja California (before there were roads there!), climbing in the mountains of southern Arizona, tracking birds and wild animals including black bear, javelina, mountain lions, even following rumors of the return of jaguars in the remote areas of the New Mexico "boot-heel." The plants, animals, geology, weather and cultures of these areas became a life-long fascination.
