Concurrent to my work at PSC, I am a PhD student at the University of New Hampshire with a research focus in northeastern US silvopastures. As strong believer in applied research, my academic work in silvopasture is partially integrated into North Branch Farm, a diversified livestock and vegetable farm I own/operate in Saranac, NY: https://www.facebook.com/pages/North-Branch-Farm/108885999207962 .
Prior to becoming grounded in the Adirondacks in 2009, I worked seasonally as a forester on Connecticut State Forests and did a bit of independent consulting forestry. My agricultural education, less formal, was obtained through work on a dairy farm, plant nursery, and growing up on a diversified family farm in New England.
