In an effort to share my love of nature, I produce a podcast, Santa Cruz Naturalist (SCN), on Santa Cruz's communitry radio station, KSQD.  SCN tells short stories about nature in and around Santa Cruz county. You can follow SCN on Apple podcasts and Spotify. If you have a question or a story to tell please contact me at!


Ever wondered what a day in the life of marine biologist might look like?
Watch as a team of research scientists from UCSC, ReefCheck CA and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) install an underwater intrument to monitor ocean acidification and hypoxia in this time lapse.

UCSC Ecology and Evolutionary Biology graduate student Jason Toy and his team collect fish samples for his disseration research using a beach seine. Check out this video to see some of the cool critters found in Elkhorn Slough! 

Thanks for dropping in!
In case we haven't met before, here's a little video about me and my research. I made this video as part of a communications class at UCSC.
