Have been a long-time insect lover. Ever since I can remember. I have no formal education in entomology other than what I read in books and on the internet. I am mostly here to learn from all the experts.

I grew up in Western Pennsylvania for the large part of my life and have been residing in the Los Angeles area for the past 5 1/2 years.

I am a professional MMA fighter and teacher of mixed martial arts as well as a serious amatuer photographer.
