I’m a retired carpenter/home builder who has always been immersed in outdoor activities: hang gliding, biking, running, skiing, surfing. My interest in the natural world focused early on snakes, then birds, and for the past many decades on plants.

As an aid to my botanical education, I’ve been a volunteer at the Jepson/UC herbarium for almost 20 years. I was co-author of the Eriastrum treatment for the 2nd Jepson Manual, and have authored several new Eriastrum species, as well as co-authored (with Leigh Johnson) several new Navarretia species.

Feel free to question any identification I might make, as it's not always easy to determine from a photo.
