Marine mammal biologist at National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Professional Track & Sign Certification, Ventura / Cuyama CA via Tracker Certification North America. Member: Certified Wildlife Trackers Association.

My interests include wildlife tracking, birding, insect identification, fishing, locating obscure desert springs, and backpacking.

If you want to learn more about the natural world, I encourage you to get into tracking and accelerate your learning process with a local tracking group and eventually a quantitative evaluation with http://trackercertification.com
