The author

I am a drylands ecologist conducting grassland research in Far West Texas. My focus is in the realm of native seed research and development.

My influences are Aldo Leopold, John Weaver, E.J. Dyksterhuis, Rex Daubenmire, John Ludwig, and David Tongway, among others.

In my spare time, I enjoy studying grassland plant communities in the various ecoregions I travel to. The study of such is a lesson in observation, realizing time as it truly is in the world that lives and dies under our feet.
