The Sky Is the Limit

I am the operations manager of a digital wildlife conservation education center and owner of a conservation technology company. Our main specialty is wildlife cameras. We stream osprey and bald eagle nests to millions online and work on nature documentaries that need specific camera systems in nests and hard-to-get-to areas. The UWG Biology program's diverse courses helped me get a better and more complete understanding of our living world.
