I am a retired research ecologist and naturalist living in Bend, Oregon, USA, currently specializing in plants of central and eastern Oregon. My background includes an MS in vegetation ecology from UC Davis, and a PhD in fishery science from Univ. of Washington. My early botanical work included vegetation analysis and mapping (pre-GIS!) and rare and endangered plant surveys in California and New Mexico. Following a switch to fish population dynamics, I worked briefly in crustacean ecology, then primarily in salmon marine ecology and conservation. Since retiring from fisheries work, I'm returning to my first love of botany and general natural history.

I am an Oregon Master Naturalist and am active with the Native Plant Society of Oregon (NPSO).
