I'm mainly an amateur botanist, but I've done some botanical work professionally, too. Based in southwestern Ontario, Canada, but I've traveled all over eastern North America, mostly looking for interesting plants. I'm particularly interested in North American ashes (Fraxinus) and asters (Astereae).

I've been on the Field Botanists of Ontario board of directors since 2019 and I coordinate FBO's three annual awards: the John Goldie lifetime achievement award, the student award and the Bill Crowley photography award.

Since 2018, I've been running an annual Big Year for Ontario botanists. Check out the 2022 Big Year project.

I collect field guides and I started a Field Guide Exchange group on Facebook.

You can also find me on eBird.
