Hi there! I am currently a student at Northern Arizona University studying Biology with minors in chemistry and business. I hope to go on to study entomology in graduate school. I currently work creating a database of insects collected from a common garden located in Agua Fria Arizona. Once our images are identified here they are being inputed into SCAN. I am happy to be learning more about bugs every day!

Some of my other interests include backpacking, hiking and creating art.

If you have any tips for me about images or how to get better at insect identification please feel free to reach out!

Thank you to all those who identify my images. It's greatly appreciated!
