Born in St. Louis, Missouri but exposed to the wilderness in Osage County, Missouri.
While I went to school at the University of Missouri for a bachelor's in biology, I joined an ecological entomology lab where I began my studies of predator-prey relationships between various insects. Around this same time, and much influenced by my research, I began to appreciate native plants through close observation paired with botany courses. I loved it so much that I continued my academic career at Kansas State University where I spent 3 years exploring the vastness of the state, from the ~tallgrass prairie~ in the East to the ~sandsage/shrotgrass prairie~ in the West. Today I use my past experiences and inspirations to build native gardens and assist others with their ecological landscape designs.
