The west coast is an incredible place in which to study or teach geology. We're also lucky to be living in beautiful Sonoma County, a mecca for sustainable agriculture and for delicious food. Geology and the environment are all around you! Enjoy!

Professional Areas of Interest: 

I have a particular interest these days in sustainable agriculture. We live in one of the best places in this country to eat sustainably. I recently co-authored a sustainable agriculture learning module for the National Association of Geoscience Teachers' Science Education Resource Center(SERC)at Carleton College in Minnesota. I also taught a class titled "Soil, Sustainable Agriculture, and the Future of Our Food" at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Sonoma State University.

I am 40-Hour Hazardous Waste and Emergency Response Trained, U.S. DOT HazMat (49 CFR172.704) Trained, and Lead Awareness Trained.

Professional Involvement and Community Service: 

CA licensed Professional Geologist
