Brief Biography: I was born and raised in Kuna, ID. Most of my time was spent playing football as a child and teenager. Once I began my college career I gained a greater interest in wildlife. Now, most of my free time is spent fishing, taking care of my aquariums, and photography.

Current Research: The objective of my research is to investigate the potential impacts that introduced species may have on the freshwater food webs of Acadia National Park. My fieldwork will require me to capture multiple taxa from several lakes in Acadia to run isotopic analyses.
