I am a data analyst by day, and an arachnology enthusiast by night! When my day job doesn't get in the way, I'm also a photographer and a college student with a focus on biology & statistics.

As a Pennsylvania native turned Texan, I've come to truly love and appreciate Texas for the diversity of life I've found here, especially in the most unsuspecting of places. And DID YOU KNOW there is a spider named Filistatinella howdyall?! Well, now you do :)

My absolute favorite critters to observe, study, and photograph are spiders, but I'm also a huge fan of herps and ants!

Please note: I am very open to folks using my photos for educational or scientific purposes - I only ask that you send me a message to tell me a bit about the material the photo(s) will be used in to ensure it will be factual/scientifically accurate, and provide appropriate credit. I've had photos used in a dozen or so publications now, and love to know where they end up!!
