I am a Certified Wildlife Biologist with 16 years of professional wildlife and research experience. My work as a researcher focuses on the fauna and ecosystems of Northern, Central, and Southern California, and the Mojave Desert provinces and includes extensive baseline mammalian inventories, surveys focused on rare animals, habitat assessment, radio telemetry, and long-term ecological studies on several endangered species. I regularly work with the western burrowing owl, San Joaquin kit fox, salt marsh harvest mouse, and the Mohave ground squirrel. I am a peer-reviewer for the journals California Fish and Game and The Canadian Field-Naturalist and have reviewed manuscripts for Western North American Naturalist, Mammalian Biology, and African Journal of Food Science.
