"I can tell you that teachers are all around to help you: with four legs or two or eight or even none; some with internal skeletons, some without. All you have to do is recognize them as teachers and be ready to hear those truths." 

― Sy Montgomery

"There is nothing in which the birds differ more than man than the way in which they can build and yet leave a landscape as it was before."

Hobbies/interests outside of work:

I really love animals but especially parrots. I have three psittacines and they are all Indian Ringnecks. One is green, one is grey, and one is white. The green one is the normal color of Indian Ringnecks while the other two are mutations. I also really love to bike and have a soft spot for the Muppets and classic Sesame Street. I think that one of the best ways to start getting to know someone is by seeing the kinds of books they keep. I have books on various topics including animals, evolution, religion, anthropology, psychology, biology and sociology. Oh, and I do voices.
