Steve traces his passion for the outdoors to days spent sneaking away from his chores on a small family farm to explore the many inland lakes throughout Michigan. This same curiosity took him on a canoe voyage down the Mississippi River where he fostered his interest in understanding the complex interactions between humans and aquatic systems. Under the guidance of Dr. Chuck Krueger, Steve’s graduate studies are focused in fisheries science and management with a thesis exploring the spawning habitat selection of stocked and wild (F1) lake trout on the south shore of Drummond Island in northern Lake Huron. As a technician at the USGS – Great Lakes Science Center, Steve is particularly excited to directly apply his training in support of the Great Lakes Deepwater Science program.
