Long time observation/Photography contributor to Mushroomobserver.org. Published author of "Fungal Freedom-A Guide To Wild Mushrooms Of Washington State." Specializing in all major Genera of fungi, slime molds, myco-heterotrophic flowering plants, Lichens and tree associates in the Pacific Northwest(Washington State specifically), along with fungi of Iowa and Missouri. I have contributed over 9,000 images and descriptions of a multitude of fungi that I know and love on Mushroomobserver.org and seek out to learn new taxa on a daily basis. Currently cited worldwide from Finland, Europe and The United States as an expert in mushroom documentation/photography. 300+ Dried, Documented/vouchered/bagged fungal specimens in home herbarium(most coinciding with my numbered mushroom observer observations-and iNaturalist obs). Also a NAMA national photography contest award winner, contributor to multiple publications(Mother Earth Living, Northernbushcraft, Wikipedia, Discoverlife, Encyclopedia of Life, "Mushrooms Of The Northwest" and The Mycophile) and an avid assistant with ID of fungi for others. A few of my photographs are being used here on iNaturalist as type examples for species(Ganoderma oregonense, Urnula padeniana, Sarcodon fuscoindicus, Leptonia cyanea and Sarcosphaera spp.). I have become almost as equally passionate about ornithology in the last few years and try to capture as many birding images as I can, as well, especially during winter months(along with whatever new plant or critter crosses my path). Eagle Scout(awarded 1995) project: habitat restoration of Woodard Creek/wetland with Olympia, WA stream team. Graduate(B.A. The Evergreen State College) and Washington state licensed CNA. I Began fascination with wildlife early on in scouting and continued to present day. Over 1,200 taxa observed in life list(a percentage are reflected on profile page due to filters).
