Biography:

I've been collecting insects since I was 11, concentrating on beetles for the past 30 years or so. Recently, I retired as head of the Entomology Section at the Florida Department of Agriculture and head curator of the Florida State Collection of Arthropods. My research specialty is in the Cucujoidea but I am interested in and collect all beetles.
