About:

I grew up in Chile and completed all my post secondary education in Canada. I am fascinated about the world and how everything works. I love science and knowing why things do what they do, but I also love art in all of its forms. I enjoy the outdoors and being in nature just as much as staying at home and painting. There are so many aspects to my life that I cannot feel defined by anyone of them on their own.

Skills and expertise:

  • Plant Ecology
  • Scientific Writing
  • Data collection
  • Teaching
