Currently a sophomore studying entomology at Cornell University. My main interest is in moths. While leps got me interested in entomology, I'm quickly branching out my passion to many other insect orders and to arachnids.

I'm working on the 2nd year of a 4-year grant to curate the macrolepidoptera at the Cornell University Insect Collection.

I became interested in entomology after seeing a black witch moth (Ascalapha odorata) in Orlando, Florida, as I was amazed to see such a huge insect in an urbanized environment.

I subscribe to every post I comment on but feel free to email me for more direct contact.
