Formerly: Undergraduate researcher through the Louisiana State Arthropod Museum (LSAM) at LSU with a long standing love for critters of the six legged variety. Then, working through LSU's School of the Coast and Environment, providing quantity and quality control for arthropod specimens collected via sweep net along the Louisiana Gulf Coast.

Currently: Starting Masters degree at Arizona State University, working through the Hasbrouck Insect Collection.

I have grown relatively comfortable with identifying Eastern Cleridae, though some taxa are still troublesome. I am currently learning south-eastern Cerambycidae. I also have a fairly good grasp on generic level classification of Evaniidae. With each new identification, I learn a bit more about our insect world!

I am also very fond of stomatopods.
