Ken-ichi Ueda Admin

I'm a naturalist! I'm also one of the developers around here, so if you have any problems or ideas, please let me know in our Google Group. Oh, and my real name is Ken-ichi Ueda, in case you were wondering.

A little about me: I've been fascinated by nature for as long as I can recall. I used to horrify my mom by waltzing into the house holding snakes and salamanders to show her. Eventually, I translated that love into a degree in biology. Since then, I've worked as a GIS technician, web developer, and wildlife technician. iNaturalist grew out of the belief that I might not be alone in my desire to combine nature and the Web. Turns out I'm not!

If you have questions about iNaturalist use, policy, etc., please email instead of messaging me. It'll probably get to me eventually, but it'll help keep me from stressing out while using iNat for fun.
