Courses taught include Silviculture, Soil Science, and Forest Policy. I am also responsible for the annual second year Interior Field Trip, and the field based site diagnosis and Ecological Classification course, also offered in second year.

I have been teaching forest sciences at Vancouver Island University (Malaspina University-College) since 1987. Prior to this, I worked as an operational forester on the BC coast and in the southern interior of the province for the BC Ministry of Forests and Range and the forest industry; I also taught and practiced forestry in southern Alberta. While teaching at VIU, I have been involved in operational forestry as a partner in a coastal forest products company.


I graduated from the Selkirk College Forest Resources Technology program in 1975, worked as a forest technologist for a few years before completing my undergraduate degree in Forest Resource Management at the University of British Columbia, graduating in 1982. I am a member of the Association of BC Forest Professionals; for several terms, I sat as chair of the Vancouver Island  Section of the Canadian Institute of Forestry http://www.cif-ifc.org/ and as member of it's National Board of Directors; currently, I sit on the National Executive as Vice President; I also serve on the board of directors for the BC Coast Silvicultural Committee and the Festival of Forestry and as representative of a Canada-European Student Mobility project sponsored by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.
