Thank you for pointing your mouse or thumb my way! My name is Eric and I live and work in Santa Cruz, along the Central Coast of California. I'm passionate about biodiversity, ecological health, and how we all connect to and act upon the natural world around us.

I am the Grants and Policy Manager at the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County. Our work benefits a global biodiversity hotspot by conserving threatened habitats and working lands while improving public access to the coast, redwoods, and mountains.

In my downtime, I am working on my botany skills and enjoy playing disc golf with my partner, Alex. I'm doing my best to revive a reading habit and spend less time on screens. See below for where to find me on iNat, LinkedIn, and elsewhere.
