Currently an undergraduate student of Biology and Environmental Studies at the University of Utah. Located in the Salt Lake Valley. I like searching for, photographing, and growing plants, with a particular interest in spiny or glandular plants, plants with tiny flowers, and any small-sized or cushion plants.

I have previously worked as an intern for an herbarium and as a gardener in a public garden, and am always looking for more opportunities to participate in botanical work and research.

The group I know most about is the Grossulariaceae (genus Ribes, Gooseberry and Currant family) and I do a lot of identification for them on here, so if you need help with an ID for one or want an explanation for one of my IDs, absolutely feel free to shoot me an @ and I'll try to help out as best I can. Please note that my expertise really only extends to the US and Canada though, so I am much less accurate outside of that range (partially because the group is critically understudied outside of North America).

The other groups that I (somewhat) know how to identify are the Saxifragaceae and the Ranunculales, and also the flora of northern Utah. I am also trying to get better at identifying graminoids (in particular grasses).

My current camera setup is either a Nikon Z5 with the Nikkor 50mm Macro lens, or just my phone with or without a cheap macro clip-on lens. I also do quite a bit of focus stacking, but you should be able to tell whether an image was stacked/what it was taken with by looking at the photo metadata. All of my images are free for noncommercial use as long as credit is given, and I would prefer that you notify me when doing so so that I know what they are being used for. I also archive most of my images in their highest quality (because iNaturalist compresses photos to save server space), so if you are interested in obtaining any of those, feel free to DM me and I'll try to get them to you.

Finally, all of my best and most detailed photos can be found here.
