A Little about Me...

I grew up on Bay Road in the town of Amherst, Massachusetts where my parents, John and Linda, still live. I am a graduate of U-Mass (Amherst), where I earned a BS and an MS in Wildlife Biology and a minor degree in Forestry. Over the past 28 years I have worked as a Law Enforcement Ranger for the National Park Service, a Wildlife Biologist for the US Forest Service, a Preserve Steward for The Nature Conservancy, a Field Biologist for several research projects throughout the eastern half of North America, and as a Park Interpreter and Park Ranger for the Massachusetts State Parks. I have taught Biology, AP Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and AP Environmental Science at Pittsfield High School since 2003.

I started writing my column "Speaking of Nature" in the Recorder in 1997.

I published my first book entitled " Speaking of Nature" in 2001.

I contributed a series of lectures on the geological history of the Earth in a wonderful book entitled The Bedside Baccalaureate in 2008.

My latest book,"Still Speaking of Nature," was released in the spring of 2011.

I have been married for twelve years and live with my beautiful wife Susan in our home in Altamont, NY. If the westward trend of my residence continues I will be living somewhere in Ohio 20 years from now.
