Lifelong nature enthusiast and all around naturalist with a particular interest in birds, botany (especially sedges and bryophytes), moths, butterflies, odonates (my favourite insects), flies, and fishes, but I'm down to learn about anything! I have a special interest in rare flora and fauna, as well as phytogeography/surficial geology—I enjoy figuring out how and why everything fits together. I am a seasonal Park Naturalist in Algonquin Provincial Park, and find great pleasure in trying to wrap my head around the intricacies of the Park's natural history. During the academic year, you can find me at the University of Guelph (and usually lost in a forest somewhere on the weekends).

I aim to one day become a 100% naturalist.

Happy to help with identifications where I can.

I (try to) record my adventures, as well as other interesting notes on natural history, on my blog (Birds, Bugs, and Botany)

Here is my eBird profile

I love exploring my neighbourhood (although it has been awhile since I have lived there full time!)

One of my favourite ongoing "projects" is recording moths in my yard (link includes four species of butterflies) In the summer of 2020, I recorded over 430 species of moths.

Please note that due to the busyness of life, I am not checking notifications as often/as thoroughly as I have in the past. If you need me to edit/explain an identification, or wish to get in contact me, I suggest you @ me or send a message to my inbox.
