Biography:

I'm an insect identifier working for the USDA in Nogales, AZ, starting in 2008. Early on, my main interest was Tenebrionidae of the southwestern US, but since then I've worked on Chrysomelidae: Eumolpinae; Curculionidae; Cerambycidae; Coreidae; and Pentatomoidea. In the summer of 2017, I suddenly got hooked on Miridae, and they've been my primary obsession ever since.
