I am an Entomologist by training, but I am interested in just about anything that's alive. I moved from gorgeous SE Arizona to Washington, DC 5 years ago, but I still go back occasionally. Nowadays, I get my critterfix mostly by exploring Rock Creek Park on the weekend. Pretty amazing what you can find in the middle of a crowded metropolitan area. I also get around quite a bit visiting my family in Spain once or twice a year and traveling for my job with the Encyclopedia of Life.
