I'm a community ecologist studying fire ecology in coastal temperate rainforests located on the Central Coast of British Columbia, Canada. I study interactions between vegetation, climate and fire and how they have changed throughout the Holocene period. I'm interested in both natural and cultural fires and my research attempts to understand the ecological legacies associated with long-term anthropogenic burning and using fire as a tool for resource management.
I'm from Northern British Columbia, Canada and much of the research and photos I share are from the Pacific Northwest. I also sprinkle in wildlife and travels from time to time. I am equally divided in my love of mountains and oceans and spend as much time as possible outside. I currently reside in Ventura, California.
