Biography:

I am a natural history writer and illustrator, principal author of the Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of North America I studied entomology at Oregon State University, though did not graduate. I've been employed as an entomologist at the Oregon Zoo, Cincinnati Zoo, and Chase Studio, Inc., plus private contracts with the Smithsonian Institution and Portland State University. Just took up digital photography in March, 2009. I don't know what I'm doing, but my Canon PowerShot SX10 IS sometimes makes me look like a genius. Please contact me for contract work, collaboration on a magazine article or other publication, or let me know who's hiring. Thank you.
