I was born and raised in the United Kingdom. I am very grateful that I experienced three continents growing up - Africa, Europe and North America. Providing evidence-based investigation to help monitor, evaluate and design effective forestry and natural resources-based sustainable supply chains is key to my background and experience. I seek to interrogate the linkages between sustainability and supply and value chains, forest operations, equipment, logistics and management, ecosystems, green economy, water resources management; and resource extraction, supply and utilization strategies. As a result, I have built and maintained a nationally and internationally recognized program that addresses ecosystem services protection questions, operating equipment in environmentally sensitive areas, cost and life cycle assessments, environmental risk assessment and management, and the forest community and workforce education, health and safety. I employ multiple quantitative and qualitative data collection and research methods to help design programs and objectives, characterize criteria and attributes and evaluate the human landscape impacts at different scales.
