I am an aspiring scientist, conservationist, explorer, and educator. I graduated from University of California, Davis with a B.S. in biology, and I am currently working on my masters degree at Texas Tech University. All my life I have been intrigued by the infinite splendor of the natural world, and the question of mankind’s place within it. In addition to gaining a better understanding of the fundamental mechanics of ecology and evolutionary processes that govern life on Earth, I am dedicated to the conservation of Earth’s natural resources. For the last five years I have participated in a number of scientific research and conservation projects in the American West, as well as in Madagascar, Thailand, and Indonesia. It is my hope that this website will document my fieldwork, travels, and research endeavors, as well as highlight important breakthroughs in science.
