About me

Gender MALE
Industry Agriculture
Occupation Horticulturalist
Location Eastern Long Island, United States
Introduction From the memories of my grandfather's impressive vegetable garden and the weekly woodland walks my biologist father took my brother and I on, growing up exploring the bays and wetlands of Long Island's south shore, discovering it's plants & animals & the ecosystems that they call home has in great part shaped the person I am now. My adult life continues down this path of celebrating the earth, first by working as a vegetarian/macrobiotic chef in the natural foods industry and then as a buyer & salesperson at a progressive, all-organic garden center & nursery. My obsessive fascination with all things flora, evolution, science and the workings of the natural world continues to capture my interest and make every day an adventure.
