Full name:

City, state, country:
Dover, NH, USA

BS in Forestry and MS in Entomology from SUNY-ESF, Syracuse, NY.
Studied cerambycids and ambrosia beetles infesting windthrown cherry.
Worked for the Asian Longhorned Beetle Eradication Program in Worcester, MA.
Currently work for the US Forest Service - Forest Health Protection in New Hampshire. Most of the work we do is with forest insects, especially wood borers and bark beetles. Part of my job includes managing the Durham Field Office Forest Insect Collection. I specialize in identification of Scolytinae, but have a keen interest in Buprestidae, Cerambycidae, Cleridae, Curculionoidea, and Nitidulidae.
I'm an avid collector of insects, and my personal collection of ~5000 specimens leans heavy on Coleoptera.

I am a contributing editor here, but I limit my editing to the Scolytinae section.

I am happy to receive scolytine specimens to provide determinations for “photo vouchers.” Email me for more information.
