I'm a former wildlife biologist who spent 15 years traveling the U.S. and Central America studying birds and their habitats. While I loved my work, my curiosity about other critters and natural phenomena drew me to a second career in science writing. My interests as a science writer are broad within the realms of ecology, sociobiology, archaeology, and even neuroscience. I'm not afraid to tackle difficult subjects and have a knack for locating obscure sources of information. I now develop Natural Resource Condition Assessments (NRCAs) for the National Park Service. NRCAs evaluate and report on the current condition of important natural resources in national parks, monuments, and historical sites. Through literature searches, brainstorming, and communication with researchers I find the best and most current information to better understand how humans have and continue to shape America's most treasured natural areas.
