Some of my very first memories involve catching bugs. My nickname as a kid was "Billy the Bug." I have had a lifelong interest in nature, and I finally fell down the rabbit hole via birding around 2001. Since then, my interest in all areas of nature has expanded consistently. My friend Jim Brighton and I created Maryland Biodiversity Project ( to catalog literally all of the living things in Maryland. Our goals are to promote nature education and conservation by helping to build a more vibrant general nature study community. I'm a big fan of BugGuide and appreciate the wonderful service provided here.
