I'm a 27 year-old graduate from the University of Missouri. My degree is in Plant Sciences with an emphasis in Plant Protection. During my time at Mizzou, I incorporated as many entomology classes into my course work as I could.

I'm especially interested in Pentatomids and their nymphs.

Editors: Feel more than free to frass any image of mine that you feel doesn't add anything to the guide, I try to go through periodically and get rid of pictures of mine that don't add things, but obviously I miss them from time to time.

Feel free to e-mail or facebook me to discuss anything with entomology- always glad to hear from people with similar interests.

Despite my age, I've been around bugguide for quite some time. I started posting in 2006, when I would have been about 15.

I've done a fair bit of work with a wide variety of insects in a lab setting. Some of these include:
Podisus and Perillus (Pentatomidae)
Anasa (Coreidae)
Diabrotica (Chrysomelidae)
Euplectrus (Braconidae)

On a more serious note, if anything should happen to me, I'd like for my photos to remain on bugguide.
