.Chuck grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, where he learned about nature and enjoyed the outdoors from an early age. After many years of exploring southern environments he moved westward where he received his Bachelor of Science degree from Northern Arizona University in 1980, while receiving his Master of Science degree from Arizona State University in 1988. During the intervening years, he worked on a number of wildlife inventory projects along southwestern river systems. In 1988, Chuck joined the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Phoenix, Arizona and moved to the Service's Atlanta, Georgia, Regional Office in the spring of 1989. Chuck's duties in Atlanta have involved endangered and nongame species conservation throughout the Southeast Region. Specifically, with respect to migratory bird management, Chuck has been instrumental in developing conservation planning efforts for landbirds, shorebirds, and waterbirds. Chuck now serves as the Chief, Division of Strategic Resource Management and oversees biological and other resource planning, management, and survey support for National Wildlife Refuges in the Southeast Region.
