I am high school science teacher (biology and chemistry). I've always had a passion for nature and for teaching. From a young age, birds captured my attention which seeded my love for nature. Combining this love with my travels,and with photography ultimately led me (in a rather round about way) to bugguide. With such a well organized, accurate and fun forum to learn insect taxonomy, a new passion has flourished.

Thanks to all who contribute to bugguide, particularly those experts and self made experts who have dedicated so much time and effort to make this website truly wonderful.
