Nature, Prehistory, & Fantasy|

Artistic Expression: My primary hobbies are writing and photography. My writing usually takes the form of fantasy literature, and I am currently working on the second round of editing/rewriting for my first novel manuscript. I also enjoy writing literary journalism-type essays (things you would see in hobbyist magazines) and monologues/theater scripts.
My photography focuses mainly on nature and wildlife (particularly birds). The region of the US where I live has a great diversity of habitats and offers plenty of opportunities for any photographer.
Education: I have an Associate's Degree in Wildlife Technology, and my Bachelor's Degree was an independent major focused on environmental education, natural disasters, and writing. I know how to assess the health of habitats and waterways, determine whether they are suitable for a given species, perform various population studies, and do basic management of harvestable forest stands. I also know how to create basic mitigation plans for preparation and evacuation in case of any number of natural disasters.
Residence: The region of the US where I live is also along the line of the furthest glacial encroachment of the current "Ice Age." The entire landscape I live in has been shaped by naturally-occurring climate change, and because of the evidence and information I've gathered from living in this region my entire life and from the various professors I've studied under, I do not believe in man-made global warming. Any information you wish to present to me regarding this should be firsthand scientific papers with all the data and experiment details, not secondhand, media-edited hearsay for the common man.
