Have a B.S. in Plant Sciences with an emphasis in Plant Protection from the University of Missouri. Currently, I'm working on my Master's in Entomology through a distance program with University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
I'm especially interested in Pentatomids and their nymphs. I won't always provide an explanation when I ID specimens, but please feel more than free to ask me how I arrived where I did. I'm always happy to explain when folks are interested!
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.
Have been around bugguide for a long time and really appreciate this great community and all of those who have fostered my love for entomology. 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)
On a more serious note, if anything should happen to me, I'd like for my photos to remain on bugguide.
