David Freiberg has studied and observed volcanoes for over a decade.
He first became interested in volcanism while on a field expedition
to Kilauea Volcano, on the Big Island of Hawaii. His interest in natural
events grew through the years to include volcanoes, fires, earthquakes,
floods and thunderstorms. David is a park ranger and interpreter for
the Shoshone Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management, and Craters
of the Moon National Monument. In addition to pursing a master of science
degree from the University of Montana, David has been a journalist,
editor, photographer, lawnmower and teacher. He is originally from Iowa,
which is currently flooding due to major rainfall from enormous thunderstorms.
David hopes Craters of the Moon will erupt again soon.
