I’ve been fascinated by natural history from an early age. I grew up in San Diego County, where I spent countless hours of my childhood flipping over rocks to look for insects and herps, and searching for succulents in the canyons near my neighborhood. I majored in Environmental Studies and Biology at UC Santa Cruz, while working as a gardener at the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum & Botanic Garden. It was here that I developed a passion for botany and horticulture. I was introduced to INaturalist after participating in the California Naturalist Program. Post graduation, I’ve worked a variety of horticulture and field botany jobs, including at a retail nursery in the Bay Area, riparian vegetation surveys in the Intermountain Region, and native plant nursery work in the Mojave desert. My main focus is definitely plants, but I am also quite fond of herps, marine mollusks, and fungi. I consider myself a sort of transient botanist/naturalist. In the resource management career path, I am privileged to get to explore a very large area of the country, but for only six months at a time. I am no expert of any regional flora, but I consider myself knowledgeable of the floras of California’s central and southern coast, the Mojave desert, the Intermountain Region, and the PNW. Some of my favorite taxa are Cactaceae, Dudleya, Arctostaphylos, Heuchera, and Salix.
