I graduated from Mt. Hood Community College in 1979 with an Associates degree in Forest Technology and spent the next 10 years as a Forester on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation helping to manage their Forest. I returned to Portland in 1989 with my wife Cindy and two daughters in tow to begin my career as a Certified Arborist at Collier Arbor Care where I spent 24 years learning Arboricultural from some of the most skilled Arborist’s in the Pacific Northwest. I have been fortunate to work with a cadre of skilled and capable Arborist’s as an ISA Certified Arborist and Qualified Tree Risk Assessor here at Integrity Tree Care for nearly three years and look forward to finishing my career amongst friends and family. I spend my free time with my family recreating outdoors and serving on several commissions for the City of Gresham.
