Biography:

Nature lover all around. I document all organisms I encounter to better understand what's around me. I created and manage Arthropods of San Diego County

I volunteer as a Naturalist/Docent and a wildlife tracker in Southern California and as a Ranger at Project NOAH (Networked Organisms And Habitat).

Despite my area being saturated with bug spotters, I've been able to find some that haven't been submitted to Bug Guide before. I am very grateful for all of the identification help I receive!
