Worked with COHDEFOR and Recursos Naturales by promoting hillside agricultural and contour farming practices with the campesinos that lived in and around Celaque Mountain National Park.

I'm employed with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a Refuge Manager since 1992. My wife Tammy and I have 2 kids, Carson and Erin.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was a great experience! If I hadn't drank so many Salva Vidas I probably would remember more than I do...
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I'd love to hear from all of the RPCVs I served with, especially those that I knew by way of the Peace Corps house in Santa Rosa de Copan.
