About

I grew up on the shores of Huntington Beach, CA, and my interest in marine biology goes back as far as I can remember. After spending most of my adult life studying and working in the marine sciences, I jumped ship and became a data specialist with the libraries at Oregon State University in 2012. Being at Stanford and the Hopkins Marine Station now gives me the opportunity to combine my interests from both careers in a very special way, and I could not be any more thrilled.
