I help lead the production efforts for eBird Status and Trends and the development of geovisualizations of these products for public engagement, science, and conservation. The results of this work can be seen at eBird Science. I love being able to go from birder to computer scientist to conservation advocate all in one job, because I think that eBird has the power to become the key tool for describing the status and trends of the world’s birds.

My spark birding was a winter tour near Sault Ste Marie, Michigan, where we had Gyrfalcon, Snowy Owl, and Harlequin Duck, among other great birds. It was hard not to be hooked after all those awesome winter gems.
