Biography:

I am an aspiring naturalist, biology student at UNT, and photographer living in the DFW area. As a Pennsylvania native, I've come to truly love and appreciate Texas for the diversity of life I've witnessed, especially in the most unsuspecting of places.

My absolute favorite critters to observe, study, and photograph are spiders! If I'm not able to be outside looking for spiders myself, I am on iNaturalist helping to ID others' photos.

Full res images can be found on my Flickr account.
