I am a wildlife biologist, working primarily in Ventura, Santa Barbara and SLO Counties. I am fortunate that I get paid to spend most of my days outside in some amazing areas seeing some amazing organisms along the Central and South coast.

I came across iNat over a decade ago while reading High Country News and I've been hooked ever since. I enjoy using iNat to see what people are finding, share what I encounter, confirm/deny what I think I've seen, and to help keep sharp and expand my ID skills. Any help I can provide I'm glad to give, and I'm always glad to receive help from those more knowledgeable. Every time I log in I am amazed at how the community is growing and who is on here! I am fairly knowledgeable on certain species and genera, mainly the ones that I work with frequently or seek out intentionally. By no means am I an expert on any taxa, I know just enough to be dangerous with my presumptive IDs, so please if you feel or know my IDs to be incorrect please tell me.
