I am a research anthropologist for the National Marine Fisheries Service. My area is Alaska, including the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands,and Gulf of Alaska - all incredibly beautiful and interesting areas. I study commerical, recreational, and subsistence fisheries and fishing communities. I also have experience with marine mammals (both harvesting and tourism) in Alaska, Washington, and Hawaii. I hang around on the fringes (i.e, as affiliate faculty) of the University of Washington's Environmental Anthropology program.
