I spent the first half of my career working mainly with Haz Mat. I worked as an environmental scientist and specialized in PCB remediation. This included developing sampling plans, chasing hot spots and ultimately cleaning the mess up. I have worked in level “A” exclusion zones on supplied air and wearing a moon suit. Some of my clients included:

* Revlon
* McGraw Hill
* Prudential
* Texas Eastern
* US Pipe
* Many small mom and pop PRP’s

The other half of my life, I spent in the swamp. At some point I noticed that much of the clean-up work was in wetlands. This was something I wished to pursue so I jumped into wetland design and wetland delineation. Sadly, most of my work was still Haz Mat as the swamp was everyone seemed to be dumping all of the nasties. I ended up working on some huge Superfund Projects including:

* Marathon Battery Superfund Site (NY)
* Lapari Landfill Superfund Site (NJ)
* Bristol Landfill Superfund Site (PA)
* Christiana Superfund Site (DE)

I ended up in North Carolina doing wetland mitigation banking projects, mostly for NCDOT projects. This kept me busy for the last 10 years. For the past 5 years I have been teaching a number of wetland classes and running a wetland plant nursery with my wife and six kids. This is where the Swamp School and Cill Ide Naitve Plant Nursery fit in. I still do some consulting for a few engineering companies that includes DOT and DoD work.
