I am interested in everything about the natural
world and especially PLANTS. I am a field botanist, gardener, amateur mycologist,
and botanical illustrator. I plan to continue my education by pursuing
a doctorate in Systematic Botany. I would like to do monographic
or revisionary work with a group of Neotropical angiosperms. My long-term
goal is to accede to a position where I can conduct herbarium research
and spend plenty of time in the field.
