I am an all-around naturalist on a mission to study the ecological network of the living world.

About Me
I work to help document all species, not just the big and bright, in order to contribute to our knowledge of species distribution. This helps remind us of how important even the most obscure species can be in the ecological network. Every species has its own unique story to tell in the grand portrait of nature, and I'm listening!

I mostly focus on birds, insects, and plants, depending on the project or contract I am working on at the time. My time on iNaturalist is as much a personal journey as it is an education mission to teach others on what calls this planet home!

What Else?
I am in the process of developing several digital apps. My first work, a draft guide covering North American ladybugs, can be found here for iOS devices: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/adalia-field-guide-to-ladybugs/id1121061924?mt=8

In time, I am planning to work on several games. Video games are common in our society today, but wildlife is rarely featured. It is thus my goal to produce games that remind us that there is a "real" fantasy on our very doorstep!
