Currently an extension agent for horticulture. My undergraduate thesis was in avian movement ecology, but I want to study entomology in graduate school. I credit BugGuide with helping me grow my passion for insects, and more generally the diversity of life on Earth, from an early age! My main interests are Lepidoptera, Coleoptera (certain families), ants, and horticulturally important Hemiptera.

BugGuide first species records [insects]:

Ataenius ovatulus Horn (Coleoptera » Scarabaeoidea » Scarabaeidae » Aphodiinae » Eupariini)
Proceratium crassicorne Emery (Hymenoptera » Formicoidea » Formicidae » Proceratiinae)
