Howdy! I'm the freshwater aquarist at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. I've been studying fishes and scorpions since I was a kid. I have authored and co-authored several papers on scorpion systematics, and currently working on species descriptions from Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Mexico.
I'm also working on a field guide to the scorpions of the USA.

I'm involved in the revision of the Mastigoproctus giganteus group, so if you see any vinegaroons from New Mexico or Texas, please shoot me a message!

My other professional interests include American fishes and cacti.
