metrioptera, Contributing Editor

My name is Brandon Woo. I have been passionate about insects for over ten years. My main interest is the taxonomy and systematics of the Orthoptera, but I am broadly interested in anything alive. I read about insects all the time, participate with the Maine Entomological Society (MES) in the Schoodic Bioblitzes, contribute to the MES newsletter, collect and photograph insects, and take part in many other insect-related activities. I enjoy taxonomy, identification, and behavior of insects, and traveling to different places to collect and observe insects in those locales.

Currently I am an undergrad at Cornell University majoring in Entomology.

I am also a contributing editor and photographer to Maryland Biodiversity Project. My photos for this project are found here.

My Flickr page is here. I don't post a whole lot there, but you can find my bug photos from outside the U.S. and Canada there, plus a few other critters.
