Enthusiast, collector, breeder. Was a fourth year at California Polytechnic State University, studying Animal Science, and planning on attending graduate school to pursue my goal of becoming an entomologist, before developing a life-threatening illness. I currently am working towards remission while pursuing my scientific interests the best that I can. :)
