My name is Brett Tyler and I live in Rome, GA. I am currently a Biology Major at Berry College. Arachnology is my passion, which I hope to one day make a career of. My primary focus of study at this time is on the arachnids in my local area, particularly those of the Genus Dolomedes as well as the Infraorder Mygalomorphae. I am also in the process of conducting a survey of the Aranaeid biodiversity that exists on Berry's 26,000+ acre campus. I just recently took up photography, and aspire to use this in my on-going effort to promote the knowledge of one of God's most misunderstood, and yet fascinating, creations.
