I’ve been lucky enough to have some of my work featured on CNN, Outside TV and, National Geographic.
Please follow along as I document the modern world of citizen-science.
Follow me on my journey to document the new world of modern citizen-science and its contribution to conservation. What started as a simple beach debris survey down the coast of Washington has taken me to remote volcanic islands in the Alaskan Aleutians as well as joining the hunt for invasive species in the Salish Sea.

The outdoor community is well positioned to collect tree tissue samples from far-flung locations on a large scale across each species’ geographic range. Hiking, mountain biking, backcountry skiing, rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, and other activities bring our volunteers to places few others venture.
This information will power new tools to reveal the origin of any sample of timber––taking away illegal loggers’ ability to sneak poached trees into the world’s wood supply.
Having spent a day getting our bearings in Puntarenas, we set up sights on Costa Rica’s most popular National Park. The drive down the Pacific Coast is both exhilarating and beautiful. Once inside the park we found ourselves overwhelmed with the diversity of life within it’s tropical boundaries. It’s no wonder it is such a popular desintation.
