Judd was born in Manhattan, NY, but grew up in western New Jersey and Montana. He received a B.S. degree in zoology from Montana State University; an M.S. degree in zoology from Arizona State University; and a Ph.D. in wildland resource science (wildlife ecology) from the University of California, Berkeley. His varied career encompasses assignments and research associated with Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico; the Bureau of Land Management near Lewistown, MT; the Bureau of Reclamation in the North Platte River region of Wyoming; the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Point Reyes National Seashore in California; the National Biological Survey; and the USGS' Western Ecological Research Center.

Judd is the author or coauthor of numerous professional papers focusing on animal behavior, population, and wildlife ecology. He has been a field associate for the California Academy of Sciences and an affiliate associate professor in the Wildlife and Fisheries Department at the University of Idaho; he is currently an adjunct professor in the Wildlife Department at Humboldt State University.

Judd and his wife, Nancy, will make their home in Annapolis, MD, and continue to cultivate their hobbies of mountain biking, travel, wildlife photography, and sailing.
