Work in the environmental field as a Natural Heritage Ecologist with a Conservation Authority. I spend most of my time in Halton Region, Hamilton Region and Waterloo Region. Odes and leps are a obsessive hobby for me that also adds value to my professional work. At work I mostly am focused on plants and salamanders. I am now also learning to identify bumblebees and have interest in our native pollinators. I have given many presentations and talks on odonata, pollinators, and gardening for wildlife to our local communities, naturalist club and others. I have had a long time obsession with photography.
