Post Graduate Research and Work
• Research assistant: Dr. Ron Swaisgood, CRES, The Center for Reproduction of Endangered Species, Zoological Society of San Diego. June 2001- September 2002. Collected Behavioral data on the southern white rhinoceros in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. My job required working long hours in harsh conditions with only myself and one guard around, collection and analysis of hormones through fecal sampling, collection of detailed behavioral data on radio collard individuals using radio telemetry and GPS to find and track, data management, extensive camping and backpacking experience, as well as 4WD operation and maintenance. I was also in charge of organizing a team of guards and in maintaining the safety and well-being of the parks natural resources and animal life. Prepared detailed reports for CRES of the data collected.
• Intern: Kathy Kohm, Conservation in Practice. March 2005-Sept. 2005. Learned the
steps required to create an award winning conservation magazine including editing, layout, web-design, and writing.
• Head GIS Analyst: Scott Lee, International Broadband Electric Communications, August
2006-Present. I am in charge of retrieving and importing existing GIS data from outside sources; matching and altering that data with our needs; creating databases, feature classes, etc. and attributing classes as needed; mapping and analyzing deployment plans; distributing plans
• Research Geographer: Dr. John Jones, United States Geographic Survey (USGS),
June 2010 to Present. Within the Eastern Geographic Science Center (EGSC) I am responsible for deriving and analyzing both MODIS and AVHRR phenological metrics
over the Shenandoah National Park in northwestern Virginia from 1989 (AVHRR) and 2000 (MODIS) to present. My tasks are achieved through a combination of IDL program generation, the use of geospatial technology, and statistical analysis. In addition to the above work I also collaborate with fellow team members on other project components including field experimentation and demonstration, and weather station archicing.

Botox ® is a protein that is natural and has been purified. It is registered and is available via prescription only. Botox ® improves skin appearance by relaxing muscles that can cause wrinkles. It's derived from bacteria (under sterile laboratory conditions) in a similar way that penicillin is derived from mould. The active ingredient is called botulinum toxin. A lot of wrinkles in the
