Relevant Project Experience
Most recently I have been part of the AllenES team working with the U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) – Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) providing high quality
ecological site descriptions and supporting information at select areas of non-federal lands and
federal lands administered by the U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service throughout
Mississippi. The purpose of this project is to provide ecological site interpretations and
descriptions to the NRCS to be used as a tool to help guide: conservation planning decisions;
establishment, restoration and maintenance of desired plant communities; management
interpretations for wildlife, grazing, wood products, hydrology, invasive plant control, and/or
other special emphasis needs.
Provided wetland delineation, threatened and endangered species surveys for Section 401,
Section 404 and Section 10 permitting and mitigation assistance for numerous railroad and
transportation sites throughout Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee since 2014.  
Worked with a private energy client providing wetland delineation and permitting assistance, in
addition to corresponding with USFWS concerning T&E species to secure a letter of no effect.
Coordinated Phase I Cultural Resource Survey and provided correspondence with MDAH for a
letter of no effect. Worked closely with the client to reduce wetland impacts from 28 acres and
was able to demonstrate, through an Avoidance and Minimization report, to the USACE
Vicksburg District that activities could be permitted as a Nationwide Permit and avoided the
need for an Individual Permit ultimately saving the client money and time.  
Served as a Natural Resource Advisor for over three years on a response team in the wake of
the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill. This work consisted of monitoring operations and clean-up
teams on behalf of the US Coast Guard and US Fish and Wildlife Service. Specific duties
included implementing and updating required daily best management practices (BMPs), as
provided by the USFWS in accordance with the Endangered Species Act and the Migratory Bird
Treaty Act, CWA, Section 404 and Section 401 waters. Implemented BMPs prior to contractor
clean up, ensuring the least impact to the natural resources and wildlife. Daily activities included
GIS documentation of threatened and endangered species surveys and BMP validations, public
outreach and education, documenting observations, and providing daily reports. He
corresponded daily with operational team leaders, vessel captains, USCG, NOAA, Section 106
SHPO liaisons, Tribal representatives, Section 7 USFW liaisons, MDEQ and LDEQ liaisons, BP
representatives and County/Parish representatives and stakeholders.
While employed with the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality – Office of Land and
Water Resources division, I worked as part of a team with USGS and EPA personnel,
performing stream measurements and monitoring sonde collection throughout the many
tributaries flowing into the Back Bay, Biloxi. All activities were performed per state, local and
federal guidelines as they pertain to Environmental Protection. Stream measurements were
performed to gain flow characteristics for incorporation into TMDL formulas.
