Bio

I have spent my working life in the fields of conservation, historic preservation, and recreation. For the past twenty years, I have had the good fortune to be involved in developing the field of landscape scale collaborations from heritage areas to conservation landscape initiatives. I have served as the Director of Recreation and Conservation in the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (2007-2011), the National Coordinator for Heritage Areas for the U.S. National Park Service (2001-2007), and the Director of Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Historic Preservation (1979-2000). I am currently a Board member of US ICOMOS, a member ICOMOS Scientific Committee on Cultural Landscapes, and of course editor of the Living Landscape Observer.
