Biography:

I have a background in botany and make my living as a horticulturist. My interests are mostly in Asian flora, particularly that of Japan, and woody plants. My hobbies include wood carving & making furniture, stonework, garden design, and macro-photography.

My Current Interests:

I am broadly interested in most Dipterans & Hymenopterans as well as anything with a lot of spines, hairs, pitting or interesting architecture. I prefer things at the small end of the spectrum.

Particularly enjoying:

Asilids
Craneflies, Gnats, Mosquitoes & Midges
Parasitic Apocrita
Ants
Hoppers (tree, leaf, plant or otherwise)
Mayflies
Barklice
Eumeninae
