Biologist, Field Scientist
THE DAY I AM SATISFIED IN LIFE IS THE DAY I STOP LIVING.
My father taught me two important lessons in life: you cannot teach effort or coach hustle, and there is always going to be someone better than you. But I wanted to be that person on the top. I had to work harder and study longer to accomplish what I wanted to do in life to be the best on the field.
I love the great outdoors. At Lycoming College, I swam and was a three-year starter on the football team, becoming captain my senior year. During my college years, I realized that I cannot appreciate nature if it’s gone. I wanted to help the environment get back to what it was before contamination, so I studied Biology with a strong background in Ecology and a minor in Environmental Sciences.
The great thing about being a part of BSTI is my growth of knowledge from so many different types of field work. I love the fact that one day I will be out in the marshes conducting bird surveys and the next day troubleshooting a remediation system to better optimize extraction of a certain contaminant. This company continues to find challenging work to keep me on my toes.
When I’m not out working in the field, I’m relaxing in the same environment. From hunting to fishing or just hiking up some back mountain trail, I enjoy becoming one with nature. I also enjoy working out and tasting new foods. If it’s edible, I will try it.
