Consultant Horticulture x Environmental Management.

Current focus is plant ID for the Great Southern Bioblitz 2023: Greater Sydney.

Specifically in Hornsby Valley in the L.G.A where I reside, with gratitude to the H.S.C. staff, Bushcare, Bush Regenerators and Friends of Berowra Valley. ❤️

I grew up nearby on the verges of biodiverse Ku-ring-gai Chase and Garigal National Parks in Northern Sydney seeking any opportunities to explore the bushland. Planting local native plants was initially experienced on a range of climates and soils types.

My naturalist parents gifted epic Australian road trips on flora, birds and geology including rainforests of the east coast. Since then I have hiked throughout all states and territories, maintaining this tradition for my children, as well as Lord Howe, Hinchinbrook and Magnetic Islands.

My formative work experiences were in plant research at C.S.I.R.O. and at Macquarie University on Macquarie Island plant taxonomy with studies in Horticulture and Environmental Management while working in these fields. I volunteer as a Horticulture scholarship assessor and student mentor. I recommend to students to put W.A. on your bucket list, it's incredible!

The iNat community is a valued source of further learning. I hope to upload pics when time, thousands to sort through. I enjoy identifying plants. It's a jungle out there and there are many undescribed species to navigate.

Please speak up if you disagree with an ID, it is appreciated and reviewed, noting I can miss seeing messages when remote.

Request: Ornamental cultivated/planted plant observations should be marked as an option and the observation will appear as casual (non-wild) or they can be marked or queried by iNat community and identifiers. It's for an accurate database and science.
