Of Snakes and Soldering
Every scientist keeps a personal journal,
and in this I am no different. My day job is Resident Director
of a biological field station called the James
Reserve, sort of a bed and breakfast for biologists, located
up in the San Jacinto Mountains of Southern California. Professionally
speaking, that makes me chief, cook, bottle washer, plumber,
mechanic, ecologist, electrician, naturalist, computer programmer,
bus driver, diplomat, eco-terrorist, school teacher, fundraiser,
and the list goes on... As Robert Heinlein once said, "...specialization
is for insects."
Over the years I've had the opportunity to
travel to distant lands, and study the biological diversity on
four different continents. I've used computers most of my life,
and see technology as a strategic tool for protecting our global
ecology. I invite you to explore my journal, and encourage you
to keep in touch.
I'd like to thank the Idyllwild Town Crier
for publishing the first twelve chapters of the "Notebook
of a Digital Naturalist" in their
previous journal entries
