From an early age I was enamored with nature. More specifically I am fascinated by the minutia of the insect world, an alien universe unbeknownst to all but those who look. I enjoy exploring the lives of insects through both science and art. Professionally, I study pollinators as a graduate student and share my love of entomology with undergraduates as a Teaching Assistant. In my free time I express my love for the wild through writing and artwork in a variety of media.
