Currently a Research Fellow with USFS working on occupancy and abundance analyses for small mammals, birds, and carnivores in response to forest thinning prescriptions in the Sierra Nevada. Unintentionally, I have worked at all levels of gov - county, state, and now feds. I'm most passionate about plants, birds, and fungi, but honestly I love to document and learn about anything. Oh, and flying squirrels - lets talk about 'em.

I have a B.S. in Wildlife Biology from Humboldt State University, and I completed my California Naturalist Certification in 2018.

Check out this Belding's ground squirrel I documented at Sagehen Creek, it may be the first seen in the basin in decades:

I post my best shots here -
