Hi, I'm Jason. I am 23 and have completed 2 years of college at Christopher Newport University here in Newport News, VA. I am currently taking online classes in meteorology through Penn State University and hope to someday work with the National Weather Service (or at least do something related to weather-forecasting). I took up macro insect photography as a hobby in May 2005 and I find it to be very enjoyable and addictive! I've been a Bugguide member since June 2005.
