I am 19 and live in Cleveland. I originally started out studying birds. However I was soon introduced to Odonata by Larry Rosche who wrote the field guide on Dragonflies for North East Ohio. I soon branched out into Butterflies and eventually began volunteering in the Department of Invertebrate Zoology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. I am trying to learn as much as I can there and I am working on identifying backlogged Odonata . My most recent project is making a guide to the Katydids of Ohio with Ethan Kistler.
