My life's goal is to learn as much about and experience as much of nature as I possibly can. I've loved nature since I was a child, and in high school I decided I wanted to be able to identify every single thing I could ever find out in the wild. My focus has been on plants and fungi, but I like to think of myself as an all-round naturalist.

I've spent the last 15 years intensively exploring the forest preserves along the North Branch of the Chicago River in Illinois, but I've also spent a lot of time in other areas of the Chicago Region and northern Wisconsin, and I've had the occasional opportunity to travel to various areas of the Midwest.

I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a bachelors degree in Earth and Environmental Science and a bachelors in Biology in 2016. I ultimately want to go back to school and pursue a graduate degree. I currently want to study restoration mycology, although I have a wide variety of interests.
