What would you like us to know about you?
Fishery economist based in Anchorage, Alaska. I work for the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC), which is one of eight regional councils established under the Magnuson-Stevens Act. NPFMC recommends policy to the US Department of Commerce regarding the management of Federal fisheries off Alaska (EEZ). Alaska, Washington, and Oregon are represented with voting members on the Council. Staff acts as a secretariat. I work on analyses of policy alternatives, focusing on the human environment. My portfolio is diverse, but consists largely of Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea & Aleutian Islands groundfish fisheries, as well as the Halibut & Sablefish IFQ Program. I have also done extensive work on the North Pacific Observer Program and electronic monitoring initiatives.
