Me and my son Dylan Originally a software engineer with a passion for scuba diving and other marine hobbies, I left Microsoft in 2003 to pursue a full time career in marine research and conservation. At the Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab, I split my time between writing software tools and conducting scientific research. I am interested in facilitating progress in marine ecology and conservation by developing, applying, and helping others apply advanced software tools, statistical methods, and modeling approaches.
