I'm a graduate of Virginia Tech with a bachelors in Fish and Wildlife Conservation and a minor in Entomology. I've been fascinated with Arthropods from a young age. I try to identify members of certain groups that I find interesting and would like to hone my skills and aid in the curation of these groups on iNaturalist. I definitely make errors as I identify observations so feel free to tell me and we can discuss.

The groups that have grabbed my interest the most are Isopods (and other Peracaridans to a lesser extent), Horseshoe Crabs, Stoneflies, Roaches, Termites (I'm really bad with Termites), Silverfish, Jumping Bristletails, Beetles, and Neuropteridans (Lacewings, Antlions, Owlflies, Snakeflies, Alderflies, Dobsonflies, and Fishflies). Any resources related to these groups are greatly appreciated as I am still in many ways learning about them. I would also like to be pinged on observations of these groups to try to hone my identification skills and to see some neat Arthropods.
