About Me

Always a biologist at heart, I took a brief breather from research (for about 30 years) in order to raise my family, teach school and program computers. Now, with my children grown and gone, I decided it's time to get back into education and limnology. I'm finishing up my thesis on invasive species in freshwater systems. I prefer freshwater invertebrates, but I'm happy to work with or talk about just about any critter, be it Bluegill, Daphnia or algae.


Currently in the market for a position where I can leverage my experience in education, curriculum development, sciences and computer programming
