I am a software engineer who enjoys working with living "bugs" versus software "bugs". I am mostly interested in arachnids, most specifically, spiders. I enjoy studying and understanding their "lifestyles", biology, and physiology. (My wife thinks I need professional help...)

With that said, I am an amateur, and will give my best effort to help ID spiders and various insects (based on what I know), but I am prone to mistakes while learning (and even afterwards!). I will attempt to ID only when I am fairly certain... Please feel free to challenge my IDs so that I might continue to learn, and help others learn. Thank you!
