I have more than 34 years of experience in the area of conservation and the environment. I last served as Associate Chief of the USDA, Forest Service in the USA and oversaw 193 million acres of the National Forest System lands, Research, State and Private Forestry, and International Programs in 60 countries. I also served as acting Deputy Under Secretary for USDA Natural Resource and Environment where I have led the Forest Service, Natural Resource Conservation Service, and Gulf Coast Restoration in the United States. I worked extensively on Forest Management, Climate Change, and working with indigenous communities, and on government-to-government consultations. I also oversaw programs for natural resource technical assistance in over 60 countries during my tenure as well as serving as an aide to a Member of the United States Congress. I served on the National Wildland Fire Leadership Council and the Advisory Council for Historic Preservation. Currently, I am on the CEESP as a Commissioner and involved with the emerging Climate Action Commission. I am a Spanish resident in Barcelona, Cataluyna, Spain.
