𓍊𓋼𓍊𓋼𓍊 I’m a freelance naturalist (with a B.S. in Biology) who lives in Northeast Alabama. I don’t easily make friends with humans, but am quick to get chummy with moths, frogs, and just about any other creature (or plant or fungus) I meet in the field.

I am nonbinary, neurodivergent, and I live with complex chronic illness and chronic pain (with multiple diagnoses). Nature has always been a compass to my inner calm, so living a partially disabled life means that I have to constantly find creative ways to do the things which are so essential to my well-being.

Over the years, the process of hiking, observing, photographing, and cataloguing has become a sort of secondary therapy for me. I have a strong interest in fungi, plants, and insects—but I honestly love learning about anything and everything! I cannot say that I am a specialist or expert in any field—as I definitely have a tendency to jump from one hyperfocus to the next. Most of my observations are from North Georgia (I have a gigantic backlog to work on), but I hope to rack up my Alabama observations now that I'm living here as well.
