Hey iNaturalists!

I'm a naturalist living in Loveland, Colorado. I grew up in Southern California where I learned to appreciate nature by exploring the live oak foothills and chaparral near my home as a kid. Currently, I'm on an exciting quest to photographically document the biodiversity of Larimer Co. Colorado (which is my home county). To make this goal more feasible, I will be working on only a few taxonomic groups at a time (for 2024, it's fish, herps, and mammals) and will shift my focus to another group once I've photographed 75% of the expected species within a group.

Right now, I'm wrapping up my Bachelors Degree in Secondary Biology Education online through Western Governors University. I really look forward to teaching high school biology; I'm excited to invest in the next generation!

My camera gear: a Nikon D500 DSLR body for all photography, a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens for birds, mammals, herps, butterflies, and odes, a Venus Optics Laowa 100mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO Lens for invertebrates, plants, fungi, and herps, and my iPhone 5s mainly for fishes, plants, and incidental observations.
