metrioptera, Contributing Editor
Biography:

A big thank you to all the editors here who have helped me ID my photos and shared my enthusiasm for tiny creatures!

My name is Brandon Woo and I have been passionate about insects for over thirteen years. My main interest is the taxonomy and systematics of the Orthoptera, but I am broadly interested in anything alive. I am a member of the Maine Entomological Society (MES) and have been on many of their field trips as well as contributed articles to the MES newsletter. I enjoy observing, collecting, photographing, and rearing insects; I also enjoy traveling to different places and getting to know the local natural history.

Currently I am an undergrad at Cornell University. I work in the insect collection there curating Orthoptera and related orders.

I am also a contributing editor and photographer to Maryland Biodiversity Project. My photos for this project are found here.

I am also on iNaturalist, where I mostly help out with Orthoptera identifications. My iNat page is here.

My Flickr page is here. I don't post a whole lot there, but you can find my bug photos from outside the U.S. and Canada there, plus a few other critters.
