Trained in geography, it is the distributions of species, especially plants, that fascinate me most. I enjoy finding species on the edges of their ranges, or in places you normally wouldn't expect them. I also enjoy understanding how invasive plants spread and frequently document the location of non-natives. I spend most of my time in Joshua Tree National Park (I work there as the Vegetation Program Manager) but am no stranger to other regions. I have also worked in the forests of Northern California, and the rangelands and woodlands of Eastern Nevada.
