I am a a naturalist, a photographer, and now a student in evolution and ecology at the University of Idaho. I grew up in Hollidaysburg, PA and moved to New Jersey to study at Drew University. Since then, I worked around the country as an environmental and outdoor educator and decided to step back into the world of academia. I hope to continue teaching ecology at the college level and I plan to continue to introduce people to the wonders of the wilderness.
