I'm a lifelong naturalist primarily interested in lepidoptera and botany at the moment. I am especially interested in taxonomy and the relationships between species in ecosystems as well as ecosystem restoration and cutivating native plants. Old-Growth Forest and Tallgrass Prairie/ Oak Savannah ecosystems have been a focus of mine lately.

I am based in Peterborough, Ontario, but work as a seasonal naturalist at Algonquin Park during the summers/ fall and spend my winters writing reports, doing freelance writing, or working as a tour guide/ nature educator at the Monteverde Butterfly Gardens in Costa Rica.
