Ive been interested in insects since I was a kid. I was always collecting and observing insects in various parks within Nyc. I'm presently keeping some live Calosoma scrutator and Scarites very hardy in captivity. I also have an interest in taking photos of nature especially insects, I really enjoy this website It's been quite helpful in identifying insects and kin.. Im what you would call a passoinate observer of insects. My profession and other passion is freelance studio musician/composer/arranger.My primary musical tools of choice are Pro tools 11 and Logic pro x.
