I was raised being a lover of nature. My dad raised me to learn about all animals, particularly reptiles and amphibians. However, when I was 10 my passion turned to our winged, feathered friends. After many years of studying and searching in the field, I can just about identify any bird in North America unless they're eastern warblers or empids (Empidonax genus flycatchers). My favorite animal is the Swainson's Hawk or the Grizzly Bear (close encounters really give you an appreciation for them!). I also enjoy big game watching and I'm still working on making basic ids on trees and plants. My biggest hobbies in nature are birdwatching, hiking, fishing and of course photographing everything I see!

As a curator, I will mainly be working on keeping the Orthoptera (grasshoppers/crickets) taxonomy up-to-date on iNat, though I'm neither officially or unofficially the curator for the taxon.

As of fall 2023, I will be pursuing the dream of being a wildlife biologist at Brigham Young University Idaho in Rexburg, ID.
