I'm deeply in love with macrolichens, macrofungi, and liverworts! Also marmots, omfg 🤩. You can find me on a constant treasure hunt for rare and common native flora and funga, from the hellscapes of our human cities, to the deep reaches of all the wild places. I occasionally partake in natural history illustration, and would love to do a county level liverwort and/or lichen field guide. Someday I'm going to help bring Grizzlies back to California, cuz it's the right thing to do, so let's work out this coexistence thing, rancher dudes 😜

I love everything about the amazing biodiversity on this planet, from the charismatic megafauna to the tiny, supposedly insignificant beings that colonize rock surfaces and bare soil. I just want to know everything about everything, and am so chuffed to be able to meet the myriad organisms we are lucky enough to call our neighbors.
