Biography:

I have a passion for the social wasps and bees, but am also interested in other insects, birds, and reptiles. I have my B.S. and M.S. in Entomology, and am currently studying stingless bees at Western Sydney University. I regularly upload footage of social wasps and other natural wonders on my youtube channel, linked above.
