I am an amateur naturalist with a passion for observing and documenting nature. I am particularly interested in seashore and forest habitats of the Pacific Northwest. I teach elementary science and lead a junior naturalist club for my students.

I am the owner/curator of the Marine Life of the Salish Sea project.
