I got my BS in biology from Grand Valley State University in 2007, all insect related classes taken of course. I pretty much like all life and watching things change, grow and interact. Right now I am at a cross roads in my life as I look for further direction and enjoy doing what I can to help the scientific community. I love Bug Guide and have been silently watching it grow over the years; now that I have a camera with macro functions I hope to be able to directly aid that growth. I try to proof my post for spelling, but some things might still get through as I am dislexic. Feel free to correct me :)
