I have been involved with animals for twenty years. Upon my graduation from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Communication, Education and Interpretation, I was working at the Columbus Zoo in Ohio as a presenter and animal trainer. In 2000, I accepted a position at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo as the Animal Ambassador Manager. After 10 years in Florida, along with my wife and newborn son, I decided to slow things down a bit by moving to Montana. In 2011, I accepted the position of Executive Director at ZooMontana in Billings. I am happily married with one son.
