A Little Bit About Me

Growing up in Allentown, PA I spent most of my childhood free time in the little bit of woods near my home. It was here I developed my interest in the forest and in the wildlife that lived there. I caught wild animals and kept them as pets, read about and observed them and hunted when I became old enough. Hunting wild game became a passion. Most of my best memories were made in persuit of game.

I did a lot of hunting and fishing back then and dreamed of hunting in exotic places. Based on my love of the outdoors, I studied wildlife management, forestry and agriculture in college and developed a hunting and outdoor lifestyle. I have hunted all over North America with backpack, bow or rifle in hand and had many adventures.

My wildlife research included ptarmigan re-introduction habitat work in Montana and Colorado and deer research here in Pennsylvania.

When I was 39, I was invited to do forestry research and study for a Master of Forest Resources degree at Penn State. I am fortunate enough to have received a Masters from one of the best forestry schools in the country.

Since 1996, I have been working with private landowners as well as State forestry agencies on their forestry and wildlife habitat projects throughout Pennsylvania, New York and Maryland. I am also a Realtor, landman and land investment consultant. I have worked on many thousands of acres of forest land over the past 25 years.

I have continued educational pursuits at Penn State, having recently receiving a graduate certificate in Geographic Information Systems and with the QDMA, having earned their Deer Steward credential and continue to learn from interactions with the world’s most popular game animal – the whitetailed deer. I also continue to learn from hands-on experience in forestry. Every timber sale, harvest, habitat installation and herbicide job is a little different and all have their lessons.

The bottom line is that it is a rarity to come across businesses such as mine with the depth of experience and education that I offer.
