I am a biology professor at Sacramento City College where I teach courses in the Field Ecology program. I am a wildlife biologist with research interests in mammalogy and entomology and I specialize in working with ringtails (a relative of raccoons, coatis, and kinkajous) and bats. I also have a love of all things dealing with entomology. One of my favorite places to travel to is Belize in Central America - I have been fortunate to be able to go to Belize numerous times during the last decade. Recently (2014) I funded on this website an entomology project in Belize. That initial project has now blossomed into multiple University field classes in Belize and the beginnings of a biodiversity inventory project for the northern Maya Mountains of Belize.
