Hi! I am the Manager of Citizen Science at the National Geographic Society and spend a lot of my time organizing BioBlitzes. iNaturalist is an essential part of the work we do and one of the best organizations, and best partners, I have ever worked with.

I have degrees in ecology and environmental management, but I'm not a very good field naturalist. iNat is helping me get better. I live right in Washington, DC and love learning about and celebrating urban nature. I also try to document some of the things I find when I travel.

Thanks for helping out with all the BioBlitzes this year! We REALLY appreciate all the observations and identifications.
