I’m a proud Spanish-speaking Tucsonan deeply in love with the Sonoran region—studying, exploring, and documenting it’s biological and cultural diversity (often with violin in tow) most of my 33 years (2019). I’m interested in the intersection of natural and cultural history, specializing in amphibians, reptiles, plants/horticulture, ethnoecology, and regional gastronomy. I’ve consulted for and assisted in the production of literature and video in the Sonoran region, and published in academic and popular outlets. I currently preside at the Tucson Herpetological Society, assist with ongoing developments at the Desert Laboratory on Tumamoc Hill, am a member of NextGen Sonoran Desert Researchers, and grow plants.
