Interest and Expertise

My research interests are in environmental and science education, technology to enhance and extend outdoor education, educator professional development, and inquiry-based teaching and learning. I am an Eagle Scout and worked at Custaloga Town Scout Reservation for 10 summers. When not at work, I enjoy kayaking, rock climbing, backpacking, hiking, and other outdoor adventures with my family.
