Course Information

At Pacific University, all faculty teach a variety of different courses. Typically, we do not use graduate teaching assistants, which means that your classes will be taught by professors and that you will have plenty of opportunities to get to know the faculty in your discipline. Below I have listed some of the courses that I teach. We are always developing and trying out new classes, so the list may change now and then.

Extracurricular Activities

I am an independent consultant providing board and organizational development, collaboration, facilitation, grant writing, and public relations services to public and private clients in the fields of natural resources and the environment. I am dedicated to the success of nonprofit environmental organizations and bring my clients a broad base of experience tempered with enthusiasm, humor, and straight talk.

When I'm not teaching or consulting, I am usually out in the wilds of the PNW, leading backpacking, kayaking, and mountaineering trips, frolicking in the ocean, screaming around Chehalem Mountain on my bike, or playing an intense game of ping pong. Despite my seeming hyperactivity, I recently found that I'm finally old enough to appreciate yoga.
