I am an environmental geographer. I enjoy working with and learning from the people who protect and maintain the land, and strive to contribute to the conservation of our ecologically and culturally unique places.
I grew up among the forests and farms of New Jersey’s Sourland Mountains. With the West calling, I moved to California and completed a graduate program at San Diego State University focused on land use change and environmental conservation in San Diego and San Luis Obispo. Along the journey, I developed a deep love for mountains, the outdoors, and the role we play in our environment.
