IN Department of Natural Resources


I am an avid outdoorsman with a passion for natural resources. I manage my 13 acre  southern Indiana parcel with 2 limestone bedrock streams for native trees and shrubs for habitat. I have worked for Indiana DNR for 19 years, first as a statewide biologist, then manager of the Environmental Unit and for the last 15 managing the Compliance and Enforcement program.  I deal with everything from unpermitted fill placement to illegal homes in floodways to unauthorized or failing dams and much more.
I also rescue senior dogs on the kill list from local Animal Control offices.
