I'm the guy behind the Edible Plant Project (which you would know about if you were part of the local food movement in Gainesville). I accumulate information on subjects that interest me. People seek my counsel for advice on gardening, ecology, foraging, and invasive plant control.
Every so often I'll decide I need to learn about a subject and then go study the crap out of it. For example, I did that with mushrooms a few years ago. I love mushrooms because they're beautiful and seem almost magical in how they appear as-if out of nowhere, and then disappear without a trace shortly thereafter. Some are good to eat, some are medicinal, and some are deadly. Anyway, now I enjoy foraging for edible and medicinal kinds. That's just one of my interests. I have many more. I like the outdoors and spending time in nature. If you want to know anything else, just ask.
