I'm a zoologist-in-the-making, enamored with fieldwork and wildlife (especially birds and mammals). Originally from Chino, CA, I'm a Zoology major/Painting minor at the University of Wyoming. As a long time volunteer with the U.Wyo Museum of Vertebrates, I'm perpetually excited about natural history collections. My interests encompass academic research in wildlife ecology/biology and science-art collaborations. The prairies and vast blue skies of Wyoming are like a second home; I LOVE hosting fellow alumni so don't be afraid to contact me if you're passing through!
