I'm a zookeeper in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and enjoy both animals and photography. It makes sense that I would be hanging out at! I work with amphibians and reptiles, but traditionally, the herpetology department also works with invertebrates. Some herp keepers aren't into bugs. Well, I'm not "that guy." I absolutely LOVE invertebrates and know they're the little things that make the world go round. I look forward to gaining new information that's posted by others on this site, and I also hope to contribute a little as well.

I now shoot with a Nikon D300s and a 105mm Sigma macro lens.
