Introduction

I believe that the impulse to observe and appreciate biodiversity is vital to nurture, as it is this appreciation that is required to motivate people to conserve the habitats and take the needed steps to slow down the great extinction underway across the globe. People won't save what they don't appreciate. Knowledge is power, but compassion is even more powerful.

What types of projects do you like working on most?

Bio-blitzes, birding, outreach and education to kids

How did you hear about Nerds For Nature?

Mentioned in a SF Chronicle article on a bioblitz.

Introduction

I grew up in NC and moved out to California in 2001 to study bird populations and do conservation work. I'm a researcher in biomedical lab now and get out as often as I can around the Bay Area.
