Paul is a fisheries biologist and project manager for the US Forest Service’s Enterprise Programs. Paul began his river restoration journey in the mid-90’s. During Paul’s career, his approach to river restoration has been shaped and changed by the people he works with, and critical evaluation of his earlier projects and their level of effectiveness. This has helped him learn to recognize degraded river-wetland corridors, legacy impacts, and how they might have functioned prior to incision/channelization. Paul aims to always be learning, evolving, and applying new ideas to his next projects.

Paul is a member of the USFS Pacific Northwest Region’s Restoration Assistance Team. He works with an incredible team of professionals expanding the boundaries of process-based restoration, specializing in restoring the processes within depositional valleys to evolve towards the Stage 0 condition.
