I am a recent graduate of the University of South Florida with a strong passion for insects and biodiversity. I am interested in all things entomology, including insect taxonomy, parasitology, endemicism (especially in Florida), ecology, and behavior. I enjoy learning how to identify insects as thoroughly as I can. I am also a contributing editor at BugGuide.net.

In an effort to increase awareness about decolonizing naturalism, the vast majority of my observations take place in the land of the Seminole and the Tocobaga Native American tribes.

Profile picture features a Florida true katydid nymph, Lea floridensis. A species largely restricted to Florida, it serves as a testament to the state's unique fauna.
