I'm a jack of all trades (master of none) computer guy doing work ranging from server maintenance to web programming to graphic illustration. I'm documenting the wildlife that appears in Rhode Island and taking a special interest in Leafhoppers of all sorts. Since getting up close to many species, I'm finding how docile and approachable most are.

Some of my best captures:
