High school student in Pittsburgh PA.

Hiker, photographer, botanizer, birder, and all-around naturalist. I have a passion for ecology, sustainability, and gardening (currently adding to an ever-growing native backyard landscape). My specialty is identifying the birds of Eastern North America but I am just as passionate about other taxa as well.

I am a co-coordinator of the Pittsburgh Christmas Bird Count, a member of Pittsburgh Youth for Climate Action (PYCA), the Three Rivers Birding Club (3RBC), the Western PA Mushroom Club, and the Western Pennsylvania horticultural society. I also volunteer for the Pittsburgh Parks where I've led bird walks for elementary school campers, and I lead walks for the 3RBC.

Also, I recently discovered the first Merlins to breed in Allegheny County: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/127304506 , which I wrote an essay about that is published in The Peregrine, the 3RBC's bimonthly journal. Feel free to reach out to me about that!
