I'm a naturalist with a varied interest in California foraging, plant identification, and a love for birds, insects, and all living things. The pandemic turned my interest of nature and hiking into a necessary weekly ritual to keep my sanity. After purchasing the book "Flowering Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains" by Nancy Dale, I became very interested in using it to look up plants I would pass on my hikes. I then joined my local CNPS chapter and found out about iNaturalist and now here we are. I studied Cinematography at Academy of Art University and currently use those skills to photograph the natural world to help people be more aware of how our surroundings are changing. I currently teach children about Southern California ecology but hope to one day be working doing plant and wildlife surveys. I hope you enjoy my photos and don't hesitate to follow!
