Mr. Michael Brown
A native of Lawton, Oklahoma, Mr. Brown is a graduate of Cameron University where he earned a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Biology (Zoology concentration) with minors in Chemistry and Music Education. He went on to pursue graduate studies in Zoology (Fisheries Biology) at Oklahoma State University, while working as a fisheries research biologist with the Oklahoma Coop Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at OSU, where he studied the population ecology of flathead catfish. He's been an educator since 2001 and holds teaching certifications in science and music education, and an ichthyologist whose research on the channel darter has been cited in the book "Fishes of Oklahoma" (Miller and Robinson, 2004). Mr. Brown is still involved in studying ichthyology, focusing on the population ecology and environmental biology of fishes, and is currently researching the effects of salinity on reproduction in livebearing fishes. When he's not teaching, Mr. Brown enjoys fishing, cooking, playing the saxophone with various music groups in the San Antonio area and in his church, and spending time with his wife Nga Nguyen and their two sons.
