Botanist with an interest in California-endemic plants and native communities. Interested in conservation biology and community ecology. Some knowledge of basidiomycete taxa, eager to learn more about birds, amphibians, reptiles, and insects.

Currently interested in differentiating local (Monterey Bay Region) Arctostaphylos, Quercus, Diplacus, and other tricky genera (Lupinus, Eriogonum, etc).
