I'm currently studying biology at Wheaton College near Chicago, focusing on ecology and evolutionary biology. At home I'm a curatorial assistant for the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, making me a semi-professional malacologist. I specialize in Californian mollusks (particularly marine), but I'm familiar with mollusks from other regions I've explored—such as the Midwest and the Black Hills of South Dakota. I enjoy helping out with identifications, but while I'm away from home I only have my digital library, the internet, and whatever I can remember off the top of my head. In general, I am fascinated by the diversity of life we are blessed with and I love getting outside and exploring it.

I also play classical piano and run cross country and track, specializing in the 800m.
