About Me

I've lived in south-central Pennsylvania since 2003, prior to that in North Carolina. Professionally interests are pursued in Website Design, Training First Responders (and others), Hazardous Materials and Radiological Response and Photography.

As a Hazardous Materials Technician-Specialist with the Lancaster County HazMat-2 Environmental Fire Rescue Team, I am qualified as Specialist (per NFPA 472) for responding to Radiation, Anhydrous Ammonia, Tank Truck, Mass Decontamination and WMD Sampling incidents. I serve as Radiological Officer (RO) for both the Lancaster County Emergency Management Agency and the HazMat Team. Also a RAD-III Instructor for teaching a variety of radiological response courses.

My professional career has been as the Environment Health and Safety (EH&S) and Quality/ISO-9000 Manager for a group of paper mills, Emergency Management, Adult Education and responding to Radiological and Hazardous Materials incidents. Prior to moving to Pennsylvania, served as Volunteer Firefighter and Radiological Defense Officer (RDO) in North Carolina.

As a Local Level Instructor for the the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) and the Pennsylvania State Fire Academy, courses are taught as an adjunct instructor for Bucks County Community College ("Bucks") and Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC). A variety of courses are instructed related to Hazardous Materials, Safety, Radiological hazards, Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism topics – primarily for Industry and the Emergency Services but also for schools and other audiences (including the general public).

For relaxation I enjoy taking walks with my dog (a black lab), nature photography, writing, and playing musical instruments – including mountain lap dulcimer, drums (Scottish-Irish bodhrans and Native American drums), Native American flute, didgeridoo and jaw harp (Lochaber trump).

Please contact me if you possibly have any training, website or other needs which you'd like to discuss, I'd be glad for the opportunity to assist you! You may email me at “”.
