Education: 1984: Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

In 1976 I came west, and after a brief stint with the Canadian Pacific Railway, I worked a number of years in construction.

I attended the Northern Institute of Technology in 1982, graduating from the Forest Technology School in Hinton in 1984. After graduation I began my career with the Alberta Forest Service, and what we now know as Alberta Sustainable Resource Development. During this time I worked out of: Footner Lake Forest Headquarters, Rainbow Lake Ranger District, High Level Ranger District, Brazeau Ranger District, Cold Creek Ranger District, the Grande Prairie Wildfire Management Area , the Southern Rockies Wildfire Management Area, and more recently the Southern Rockies Area. While posted at these locations I worked a variety of resource management positions, including Forest Officer, Senior Ranger, Forest Protection Officer, Wildfire Air & Operations Officer, Wildfire Area Manager and Forestry Program Manager.

I have been involved in field operations for most of my career and have participated in a full range of resource management areas including: forest protection, timber management, silviculture , land management, recreation and forest health. I have worked through Alberta’s Fireline Organization and the Incident Command System (ICS), where I have held positions as an Incident Commander 2, Operations Section Chief 1 and Logistics Section Chief 1; And I have instructed and , or chaired a variety of wildfire courses at the Hinton Training Center. I currently remain active as a Logistics Section Chief 1 with Alberta’s Incident Management Teams.

In November of 2009, I was provided an opportunity to work with the FPInnovations Wildfire Operations Research, where I believe I bring agency operational and management experience to the group. It is my goal to use both my past experience and contacts to further research opportunities in Wildfire Management.
