My name is Nina House! I’m a recent graduate of SUNY Oswego in Central New York and a new inhabitant of Southern California. I moved here with my boyfriend of five years after he was offered a job at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

I started this blog in the hopes of keeping up with my scientific writing and research skills as I pursue environmental jobs and graduate school. I hope to use it as a way of furthering my interests in plant and animal identification, sustainability problems and solutions, and other scientific topics that pique my interest.

I enjoy hiking, photography, reading, eating, collecting plants, watching Netflix, shopping, and exploring.
