Doug was born and raised near Milwaukee, though his paternal ancestors were pioneers in the Boyne City area and he’s always known and loved the Little Traverse region. Doug attended the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point. He graduated with a B.S. degree in fisheries management in 1975. After graduation, Doug studied and worked as a research assistant at the University of Michigan Biological Station on Douglas Lake until 1979. From 1980 until 1987 Doug shifted the focus of his aquatic interests somewhat while working for Van Dam Woodcraft, a custom wooden boat builder in the Harbor Springs area. He was employed at the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council from 1987 until 2004. From 2006 until his retirement in 2014 he served as Director of Stewardship at Little Traverse Conservancy, working to manage nature preserves and monitor and enforce conservation easements.
