Professional birdwatcher with watching interests in non-birds.

I've been birding since 2001, been an eBird reviewer for Los Angeles County since 2009, and I was recently a member of the California Bird Records Committee. Originally from L.A. County, I've done field work with birds or traveled looking for birds throughout various parts of the U.S. including Puerto Rico, as well as Veracruz through much of Central America. I've also worked a little bit with odonates, and I'm fascinated by all living things. Lately I've been trying to learn plants better, but I claim no expertise.

iNaturalist has transformed how I interact with the natural world from mere obsessive birding to paying attention to all aspects of my physical surroundings and its organisms. As C-3PO would say, thank the maker[s]!
