B.A. in Biology. Worked in pharmacology, now retired. Lifelong addiction to identifying life-forms. Love taxonomy. Obsessed birder since 1999. Previous preoccupations with turtles, cacti, flora. Began studying bugs in 2012, when I discovered what they look like with a digital camera, and that I could contribute to public understanding of their distributions through websites such as BugGuide and iNaturalist.

When I die, I would like to have all my images and other content remain on iNaturalist.
