I'm a 17 year old naturalist, budding ecologist/conservationist and photographer born, raised and still living in Chicago Illinois. I've really bounced around between interests over the years, and currently my heart sits with Midwestern flora, and really finding as many of Chicago's rare plants as I can possibly find.

As a two year old, I fell in love with nature when I watched a documentary on cuttlefish. For the next 8 years, I collected fossils and learned as much as I could about the prehistoric world, and at age 11 I was sucked into the world of birds. I started using iNat to give myself an idea of what I was looking at in a bird's mouth ready to feed to young, or the tree that bird was sitting in, and that has now morphed into an all-out obsession where I take photos of everything I see, even if I've already taken a hundred photos of it in the past.

I'll also hopefully be a proud Warner Ram at Colorado State University in the fall of 2023 where I'll ideally be studying Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology!

Sidenote, I used to be pretty careless with my ID's here, so I took a long break from it. I'd call my areas of "expertise" all North American BIRDS, SALAMANDERS, BUTTERFLIES, SNAKES, and a bunch of miscellaneous other plants, insects, etc. Feel free to tag me in anything, I'll do my best to ID it, but I'll probably not know some things.
