I am the wildfire specialist for Elk Creek Fire Protection District in Conifer, CO. I focus on risk and response mapping, home assessments, and community education.

I have been a wildland firefighter for the U.S Forest Service and National Park Service through out the west. I have a masters in Urban and Regional Planning and was a Community Planning Assistance for Wildfire team member. Most recently, I was a member the Wildfire Partners team in Boulder County, CO.
