Biologist, naturalist guide, and writer based in the South-Central Appalachian Mountains (TN/VA/NC), but I also work to learn, explore, protect, research, and interpret the wonders of life across the Andes-Amazon regions of South America (contract guide with Tamandua Expeditions), the Southeastern U.S. coastal plain, boreal forests, and beyond. Biodiversity and place-based ecology are what I love, as well as the diversity of solutions people find to live rewarding, ecologically-integrated lives alongside our planet's many cohabitants.

Disciplines I've messed around with include ethnobiology, field and agroecological botany, non-insect invertebrates (spiders, myriapods, land snails), various insect taxa (i.e. Hymenoptera, singing insects, Lepidoptera, etc.), herps, mammals (gray wolves, etc.), birds, and fungi. Please feel free to reach out and ask questions if you have questions or you're curious about any of my observations. iNat has been a wonderful resource for me to connect with some amazing people, so thank you all for making this community great.

In August, I'll be headed to Western Carolina University for my M.S. degree.
