grew up in the San Joaquin Valley near Fresno, California in a small
town named Kingsburg. I
graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2000 with a
B.A. in Cultural Anthropology and a minor in Health and
Exercise Science. After several road trips across the Southwest I became hooked on nature, addicted to seeing the places I can only imagine through maps and pictures.
lived in Fresno for 3 years while going
back to school to become a Medical Imaging
Technologist, spending summers backpacking alone. Although Fresno has the 3rd worst air
quality in the state, it is the only place in California with
3 major highways that run deep into the Gems of the High
Canyon and Sequoia National
Parks. Travelling 3 hours once a week to attend school, I developed my art on the road and in the mountains.
I'm an amateur botanist, geologist and astronomer. Please email me if you are interested in a guided trip anywhere in the Sierra Nevada.
I currently live
in Central California.
