I'm currently a graduate student at Northern Arizona University, working on several projects in northern Arizona. Most of my photos are from these projects or from my undergraduate research in southwestern Colorado. All research photos are from the Colorado Plateau. My studies are focused on arthropod ecology. My favorite groups are Hemiptera, Coleoptera,and Hymenoptera (especially Formicidae!). Feel free to contact me at the above email.

Here are my favorite rare arthropods, some represent new additions to bugguide, some range expansions, and some are just really cool!
