Experience - Dedication - Precision
Informed decision-making is the hallmark of good governance. It requires accurate data collection, management and interpretation. I have experience working for state government and non-profit organizations that has given me a diverse network of colleagues and experience. I have extensive knowledge of natural resource management including fisheries, nearshore ecology and climate change impacts. I have a unique grasp of available ecological data sets and latest science that can be mined to inform decision making and I can help you get funded with proven success writing grants to government and philanthropic funders.
I look forward to bringing my knowledge and expertise to your project.
As the global population continues to grow and climate change progresses there is increasing focus on development in the ocean. There is great opportunity with projects like sustainable energy development like offshore wind as well as many questions surrounding impacts. I specialize in mining existing data to help inform policy development for all aspects of the blue economy including offshore wind development.
