I'm a newbie naturalist with varied interest in California foraging, native 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 CA native plant society chapter and found out about iNaturalist and now all I want to do is take photos of wherever I see to document. I studied Film & Cinematography at Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA, and currently use those skills to photograph the natural world to help people be more aware of how our surroundings are changing. If I could go back to school I would love to study Marine Biology. I hope you enjoy my photos and don't hesitate to ask questions or follow!
