My goal at the Arnold Arboretum is to make each seed and cutting I cultivate not only a member of our Living Collections, but also a teaching and learning opportunity for all. My background in private residential horticulture, nursery and greenhouse research, plant tissue culture, and teaching has made me appreciate the power and connectivity of public horticulture. The Arnold Arboretum is a vast museum of living plants that respond to the world around them every day, accessible and free for all to study and appreciate. It is an honor to be the current plant propagator, given the rich history and future of horticulture and discovery at this institution.
