I am currently employed as a biologist for the Federal government. I have a background in conservation genetics and phylogeography, and have worked with a wide variety of organismal groups including fish, snakes, and invertebrates.

My primary invertebrate interests include Carabidae and aquatic Coleoptera, and more recently Hymenoptera, although I collect a wide variety of invertebrates.

I may be interested in exchanging for specimens in the above groups - feel free to contact me.
