I'm a lifelong naturalist primarily interested in lepidoptera and botany at the moment. I am especially interested in taxonomy (the way species relate to each other) as well as ecosystem restoration and propagating native plants. Old-Growth Forest and Tallgrass Prairie/ Oak Savannah ecosystems have been a focus of mine lately.

I am based in Haliburton, Ontario and do most of my geeking locally. I have worked as a seasonal naturalist and fall colours guide at Algonquin Provincial Park for three seasons, an intern at the Monteverde Butterfly Gardens in Costa Rica for two seasons, and as a field guide for the Mottled Duskywing Recovery Project in 2020.
