BIRDS AND NATURE FOR LIFE
Birds have been a defining and guiding force in my life since childhood and I am fortunate to have worked with or on behalf of birds and conservation my entire career.
I started birding in elementary school, studied Wildlife Science (Cornell University) and Conservation Biology (University of Minnesota) and have had a 30 year career (so far) working for the Minnesota Zoo, The World Parrot Trust, Audubon and now at The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota as well as a variety of research jobs around the country in my early years.
