Professional Experiences

My professional experience includes managing a large contract with NRCS. For this project, I provided layout, marking and contract administration for large parcel fuel modification projects throughout the San Bernardino Mountains. That contract lasted four years, included a staff of up to eight forest technicians, and successfully completed of over 100 fuel modification projects. I also worked as a Project Manager for a large forestry firm in Southern California working in San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego Counties. I have worked as Lead Forester for the Natural Resource Conservation Services leading a project with a $20 million budget. The USDA NRCS team assisted landowners with the removal of hundreds of thousands of dead trees from the bark beetle, thereby reducing the potential for catastrophic wildfire. I also provided contract administration of up to 10 fuel modification/logging projects at the same time.
