I study plants & rocks with an emphasis on edaphic endemism, biogeography, speciation and cool evolutionary histories (long lonely branches or broad radiations). I'm a firm believer that most modern human societies have the modus operandi of a cancer cell, mainly because they're disconnected from anything that really matters. A heavy dose of dark humor and an understanding of the geologic timescale are essential to keeping the vomit down. Most of what constitutes modern "culture" is a bottled fart. I enjoy fine Taquerias with numerous health code violations, fuzzy slippers, frivolously collecting rocks, and very brief walks on the beach.
