I've devoted almost 7 years to the task of building a digital video archive of non-game wildlife for eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota, 2011-17! Now, in the Autumn of 2017, I begin a similar endeavor for eastern Washington and western Idaho. Throughout all this, my principal focus has been on learning my local moths.

Academically, I hold three degrees in biology, have published in the areas of ornithology, herpetology and entomology (1978-95), and was, in a 'past life,' both Assistant and then Associate Professor of Biology at CSU, Bakersfield (1986-92). I left California to come to the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks (1992-2014) to work on the interdisciplinary task of developing and teaching novel courses that would better integrate an evolutionary understanding of Biology with various classical themes in the Humanities. I am now retired (2014), released from my academic responsibilities, so have rekindled my youthful passion and curiosity for all-things-zoological.
