Jack is an Astronomer at California Institute of Technology. He moved from Denver to Los Angeles in 2002. Lindsey (his wife) and Jack now have a few hundred palms growing in their garden and several hundred more coming along in containers. He has been interested in plants since childhood and even convinced Lindsey to choose their home based partially on the palm-friendly microclimate! They joined both the International Palm Society and the Palm Society of Southern California (PSSC) in 2004. In 2006, Jack became a board member for the PSSC, on which he has served continuously since that time (and on which he continues to serve.) For PSSC, Jack has mainly worked on the production of the Palm Journal. Lindsey has also been a board member for the PSSC since 2006, serving as Secretary. Jack and Lindsey have attended the past three International Palm Society biennials, including pre- and/or post-tours for the past two biennials. He and his wife have also travelled on their own to see palms in habitat, including trips to Mexico, Madagascar, Australia, and Namibia. Jack writes “I would like to contribute to the International Palm Society by serving on the board of directors. In particular, I would like to use my love of palm-related travel to help with future biennial planning. I am also happy to assist with any committee work or general tasks that require additional support.”
