Hello all,
My passions involve supporting people with ecology, environmental education, environmental communication, citizen science (i.e. public involvement in scientific research), and tech design endeavours that relate to plants, animals, and fungi.

Additionally, I create strategies, implementation plans, and other resources to support and empower diverse communities to learn more about the natural world together. I don't get into the wild as much these days, having transitioned from ecological endeavours to more socially focused ones. However, we can find fascinating beasts and plants even in the urban environments, too and I find a lot of joy in professionally teaching folks how to use technologies, such as iNat. My social explorations also include understanding how such technologies are enhancing how we learn and what we know about the world, too.

More broadly, I also advocate globally and consult for the Australian Citizen Science Association (ACSA) (you can also follow ACSA on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube).

If interested in finding out what I am up to, feel free to connect via Twitter or LinkedIn. If interested in a bit of reading relating to my work, check out this list of articles I have co-authored with a lot of very clever folks. If you don't have access to any of these articles that look interesting to you, don't hesitate to flick me a message with your email and I will send you a PDF!

In the meantime, happy naturing!
