I am a Fire and Stewardship Manager for The Nature Conservancy. I have been a fire practitioner for over 30 years. I am involved in the Missouri Fire Safe Council as well as TREX. I am also a skilled wildland firefighter and I assist in national wildfire response as needed. I represent my organization in the North East Cohesive Wildfire Strategy Committee.

Klamath River TREX

I am currently the Incident Commander for the Klamath River TREX. We promote good fire in the Klamath Mountains and Karuk Aboriginal Territory. We assist landowners with fuels reduction through prescribed fire, to build a resilient fire safe community.

Missouri Prescribed Fire Council

I am currently the Chairman on the Missouri Fire Safe Council. We are engaging local landowners, contractors, prescribed burn associations and local government agencies to promote the use of prescribed fire to increase ecological diversity, fuels reduction and landowner safety.
