If I have followed you, it's likely because I've noticed your Observations in Brooklyn!

I'm a naturalist, gardener, and garden speaker, specializing in urban gardening with native plants, with a focus on insect-plant interactions and ecological associations. I hosted and taught a Pollinator Workshop in my garden for Pollinator Week 2019. Past presentations are available on SlideShare.

I'm also intent on observations of insect-plant interactions. I've been documenting the biodiversity of my own garden here on iNaturalist:
