In 2006, Buddy received his M.S. in Raptor Biology from Boise State University, studying neonatal handling adrenocortical responsiveness, morphological development, and corticosterone binding globulin in American Kestrels and European Starlings.
In 2012, Buddy completed a doctoral program at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Medicine, Curriculum in Neurobiology, studying neuroimmune consequences of chronic ethanol exposure. He works as a Clinical Liaison for Enzo Clinical Labs.
