I'm fascinated by all forms of biodiversity, but I mostly study the taxonomy, biogeography, and ecology of macrofungi (particularly of California). With the barely-granted exception of fungi, I plead that my identifications be viewed with the presumption of ignorance.

@tiwane helped produce this video, where I talk about tips for making good mushroom observations:

Seeking to misspend what remains of my youth while sustainably keeping my brain bathed in biodiversity and general novelty.
