Photo Description


I was born in the heart of Appalachia, grew up in the swamps and rolling hills of western Kentucky, and received my B.S. in Biology and Creative Writing from Murray State University. My interests include human impacts on vegetation and wildlife, the cascading influences of predators on lower trophic levels, and ungulate herbivory impacts. The research I am pursuing at TTU involves elk and vegetation responses to forest restoration in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico. My goals are to attain a position in which I can continue with my research interests and, in the uncertain future, potentially pursue a doctorate. I love the mountains; I love swamps; I love hills; and I love to be out in them. I also love writing, reading, running, and cooking and backpacking with my wife.
