I grew up in San Diego County, where I spent countless hours of my childhood flipping over rocks to look for insects and herps, and searching for succulents in the canyons near my neighborhood. I majored in Environmental Studies and Biology at UC Santa Cruz. I developed a passion for horticulture and botany while working as a gardener at the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum & Botanic Garden in college. Post graduation, I’ve worked a variety of horticulture and field botany jobs, including at a retail nursery in the East Bay and a native plant nursery at Lake Mead National Recreation Area. I've also worked a couple seasons for the FS PIBO EMP program conducting riparian vegetation surveys in the Intermountain West. I am currently working for USGS collecting data for a number of ecological research projects in the Mojave desert. My main focus is definitely plants, but I am also quite fond of herps, marine mollusks, and fungi. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and backpacking in high mountain ranges and low deserts while documenting the flora along the way. I am no expert of any regional flora, but I consider myself knowledgeable of the floras of California’s coastal sage scrub and chaparral, the Mojave desert, Great Basin, Rocky Mountains, and the PNW. Some of my favorite taxa include Cactaceae, Dudleya, Arctostaphylos, Heuchera, and Allium.
