Well, here it is. My very first post on my very first blog. I am hopeful that I can make this a "go to" spot for information and thoughts on soils and environmental science. I suspect at times I will venture out of those particular topic areas, but then I believe that everything is connected to everything else so I feel somewhat justified in taking that liberty. I especially believe this to be true when talking about soils.
To get started - a bit about me. I am the Soil Science Program Coordinator for the Soil Science Society of America. I am also an Adjunct Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University. I have had, in my career, quite a varied background comprised of environmental consulting (including owning my own business for awhile), county government, and also academia. I was on the faculty at OSU in the School of Environment and Natural Resources before joining SSSA this past July. You will discover more about me as this blog continues, but one thing I can tell you is that I am excited to see what can happen with this blog and how it can work in reaching a wide audience. I welcome comments and questions! Lets try this out together and see where it takes us.
