Mike has over 25 years of natural resource management, research, and consulting experience throughout the western U.S. with an emphasis on threatened and endangered species, wetlands, and waterbirds. His interest in natural resources and wildlife ecology began as a young boy hunting and fishing with his father and siblings in Vermont. He earned a B.S. in Wildlife Biology at the University of Vermont and a M.S. from Humboldt State University in Natural Resources with an emphasis on Wildlife. Mike lives in Davis, CA with his wife, Kyra and their two boys, Kyle and Cody. Mike volunteers at his boys’ schools, helping to coach sports teams and serving as a project leader for 4H activities. In their spare time, he and his family keep active and enjoy being outdoors while they bike, rock climb, hike, camp, and fish. Mike also laces up his skates once a week to play ice hockey – something he can’t seem to get out of his system.
