I’ve served as a foray mycologist and speaker at numerous NAMA and local club events over the last thirty years. I’ve also hosted workshops in Michigan, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and currently teach a two-week summer course every other year at the Highlands Biological Station in North Carolina.
My background is in systematics and ecology of fleshy fungi with a specialization in Lactarius and Clavariadelphus. I’ve given talks on mushrooms for beginners, mushroom identification, poisonous fungi, and just plain cool fungi. I’m willing to serve as a foray mycologist in the Midwest and the Appalachian mountains. I’m flexible with regards to the kinds of talks I can present and willing to travel anywhere my expenses can be covered.
