Biography

Murdock lives in Fluvanna County near Kents Store with his wife, Kristen Parker, and their two young children. They farm part time, raising beef cattle, sheep, dairy goats, and forest products on family land and neighboring properties where Mr. Murdock has gained experience with the installation, maintenance, and use of many of the stream protection and water supply improvement techniques supported by TJSWCD and others (while also marveling at the speed and efficiency of natural forest regeneration where stream buffers are simply allowed to grow back on their own). Since 1993, Mr. Murdock has served on the board of directors of the Rivanna Conservation Society (RCS), and he remains active in the Rivanna Conservation Alliance, which recently merged RCS with the StreamWatch local volunteer-driven surface water monitoring program which combined and greatly enhanced the monitoring efforts of several public and private groups in the Rivanna River basin beginning in 2002. Prior to returning to Virginia, Mr. Murdock worked as a volunteer with environmental restoration and community development NGO's (non-governmental organization) in Southern Africa and Central America and stream restoration and urban forestry projects in the US Pacific Northwest and western Canada. Mr. Murdock holds a 1992 bachelors degree from the School for International Training, where he majored in environmental studies. Since 1999, Angus has owned and operated Byrd Creek Building and Landscape, LLC, specializing in historic restoration and energy efficient design-build services for new and existing structures. [3]
