Born and raised in Southern Ontario, Canada. Recently moved to the Piedmont region of North Carolina in 2013.

I am all about the moths and have been since I was a child when I came across a Luna moth shining in the moonlight on some morning glories, I've been hooked taking pictures of moths since.

Since I have recently moved to this wonderful area everything here in the animal kingdom is new to me. BugGuide has become an incredible source in helping me ID all my new found friends.

I submit most of my moth sightings to BAMONA.
