Hello! My name is Conor, and I am currently a Senior at The Ohio State University! I am currently a student of the EEOB 2210: Biodiversity of Ohio Plants course, and am very excited to take you along with me as I dive into the world of botany and learn the ins-and-outs or plant processes and identification. I am very interested in ecology and how the natural world is both interconnected and dynamic. After completing my education I hope to pursue a career in wildlife management and conservation policy. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time outdoors camping, hiking, kayaking, and playing Spikeball. Furthermore, I enjoy reading, card games, and spending time with friends and family.

To further get to know me, I created a “Coat of Arms” to describe a few things about my life. While I was born in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, my family moved to Ohio when I was two, so Ohio is definitely my home, hence the outline of the coat of arms. I was raised in Cincinnati, but have spent the last few years in Columbus and love both cities. In the top left corner is a Gaelic knot, which is a symbol I love as my family is very Irish, a culture I quite enjoy. In the top right is one of my favorite quotes, “Life is either a daring adventure of nothing,” In the bottom left is the name of an Ohio State campus organization, Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens. I have worked for Chadwick for a majority of my time as a student, and have loved my time their, the people I work with, and the mission of the organization.
