I am a naturalist living on Galiano Island, BC, pursuing an MSc in the School of Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria, with a focus on the implications of seasonal drought for plant and pollinator communities in the southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia.

The better part of my taxonomic knowledge covers lichens, mosses and vascular plants, but at heart I am a generalist and celebrate all "walks of life." My interests in natural history vary widely, from phenology to evolutionary biology, and were inspired by an unlikely encounter with a lichenologist.
