Hobbies:  In my free time I like to coach my son’s soccer team, and go on hikes and nature walks with my family. I also grow orchids and maintain a coral reef aquarium.

Research:  My research interests center around how humans are impacting ecosystems. Particularly, I focus on this issue relating to coral reefs and freshwater ecosystems.

Personal Life:  My family consists of my spouse (Megan Levas), my two sons: Xavier (1 yr.) and Alexander (5), as well as our two dogs, Natty and Nala, and a poison dart frog named Rico. I am originally from Greendale, Wisconsin, so I am excited to be here and join the Whitewater community.
