Biologist, grad student, naturalist guide, and writer based in the South-Central Appalachian Mountains (TN/VA/NC). I also work with the biodiversity of the Andes-Amazon regions of South America (studied on scholarship with USFQ partnership in Ecuador, and now do some contract guiding with Tamandua Expeditions in Peru), 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 (what I currently research formally), field and agroecological botany, non-insect invertebrates (spiders, myriapods, land snails), various insect taxa (i.e. Hymenoptera, singing insects, Lepidoptera, etc.), herps, mammals, 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, and I want to do my part to make it stronger.
