Biography:

As an undergraduate student, I spent most of my time looking at centipedes in the biological collection at UConn. As a result I became quite good at identifying centipedes and was asked to be an editor on BugGuide.net. Although my career has moved away from myriapodology since graduation, I hope to still be of service on this site.
