Current status: Busy. I am a recent graduate at 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

I do my best to identify insects of any order, but at the moment I'm tackling Diptera. I do not agree to IDs solely because others have agreed.

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