I am an archivist, past president of the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association (COMA), member of NAMA’s Education Committee, and contributing editor to FUNGI Magazine. My column “Notes from Underground” appears regularly in FUNGI. I am available to give talks in the eastern U.S. and will consider other locations depending on the circumstances. My presentations include Mycology is Mushrooming (introduction to mycology); History of Mycology; Literary Natural History; Mushrooms in Literature and Poetry; Mushrooms in Popular Culture; Myxomycetes; Mycologists of the 19th and 20th Centuries; Nomenclature and Taxonomy. I also give readings of poetry and literary texts on various mycological and botanical subjects. My earlier “Notes from Underground” articles may be found on the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association (COMA) website.
