Andy with California Condor #20 during a routine health check.

I graduated from University of California, Davis with a B.S. in biology, emphasizing in ecology, evolution, and biodiversity, with minors in wildlife conservation and anthropology. All my life I have been intrigued by the infinite splendor of the natural world, and the question of mankind’s place within it.

In addition to gaining a better understanding of the fundamental mechanics of ecology and evolutionary processes that govern life on Earth, I am dedicated to the conservation of Earth’s natural resources. I have participated in a number of scientific research and conservation projects, primarily in California and Nevada. I am currently working for the Great Basin Institute in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the California Condor Recovery Program.

I plan to go back to graduate school to study conservation genetics and molecular ecology.
