Education in business, passion in nature.
B.S. Business Management
M.S. Biological Sciences, studying Beetles associated with Fungi.

I am very familiar with Eastern Butterflies, still learning skippers and moths.
Most Eastern millipedes I can take to family or lower.
Co-author of Millipedes of Ohio.
Other random taxa, especially beetles, as they pique my interest!

My identifications are usually visual recognition, not through scientific keys (but this is changing), I welcome any corrections.

While some might hike 2 miles per hour, I prefer 2 hours per mile, to enjoy all the little things around you.

I like to touch and examine nature, so many of my photos will be taken one handed with the subject in the other.
