Research: land and resource issues

I have a long history working with land and resources issues in Alaska, most of it in government. This work included issues involving land planning, mining, oil and gas, and forestry. While much of my work has been at the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, I've taken breaks to go back to graduate school, and to work as the Planning Director of the Exxon Valdez Trustee Council, as an economist with the Alaska Power Authority, and as a private consultant.

In 1996, I came back to DNR to coordinate Alaska's large-mine permitting process, and then for seven years before I left DNR in 2005, I was the Director of the Division of Mining, Land and Water.

After leaving DNR, I joined Jade North, LLC. Jade North is a small consulting firm specializing in natural resource issues. A significant part of my work with the firm involves mining, permitting, and policy issues for industry, local government, and Native Corporations. As my Visiting Professor position at ISER is half-time, I am still involved in these issues for these clients with Jade North.

I have a passion for resource issues, and have taught UAA courses in public land management, the mining industry, and how to talk about contentious issues.
