|I am a research botanist and environmental consultant based in San Diego, California. I specialize in conducting floristic surveys in a variety of habitats with a focus on the identification of special-status plant species. I also conduct protocol surveys for endangered plant species and collect herbarium vouchers of these species. I lead special-status plant surveys for alternative energy projects, transportation projects, and private development projects throughout California. I also research the phylogenetic relationships in Oreocarya (Boraginaceae) and am authoring the FNA treatment for this genus.
