Hi there! I recently graduated from Northern Arizona University with a BS in 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 insect biodiversity collected from a common garden located in Agua Fria National Monument. I manage the Media lab for NAU which have projects through Walnut Canyon National Monument, USGS associated projects, and Grand Canyon studies. I work managing the arthopod collection for NAU as well.

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!
