I have been earning a living as a forester for over twenty-five years now, but since I was twelve years old I knew what I wanted to do when I grew up. I have been fortunate enough to learn from people who have been practicing forestry for fifty years, and I have been lucky enough to pass along some of what I have learned to the next generation of foresters.

The largest joy I receive from being a forester is meeting people who care about the land, assisting them with defining their goals and objectives, and finally implementing those goals on their property. Whether the project is a several hundred acre property that has been in the family for sixty years, or it is a twenty acre parcel that a young couple just bought to build a home on, I enjoy developing the relationship with the landowners and working towards a common goal.

Projects that I work on are as diverse as landowners. Clients that I work with include family forest owners, industrial land owners, State government, county government, conservation organizations, and other non-governmental organizations. In addition, continued participation with WSU and the DNR occur through Coached Planning Workshops and Family Forest Owner Field Days to help educate landowners as to value of practicing forestry on their land.
I am a member of the Association of Consulting Foresters and the Society of American Foresters. 

I graduated from Washington State University with a BS in Natural Resource Management and a minor in Business. I am a graduate of Class 19 of the Washington Agriculture and Forestry Education Program.

My career has involved employment with the United States Forest Service, the WA Department of Natural Resources, the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks, and as a private consulting forester since 2000.

If you have any questions about my experience or qualifications, please ask. I look forward to assisting you with your project.
