Dipterist first, photographer second. I keep uncropped versions of all of my photos, so let me know if you would like to use one.

I like flies. I volunteer in the Smithsonian USNM collection, as well as curating a personal collection. I create resources for fly identification with @edanko:

The Fly Guide. If you have suggestions, questions, or want to contribute to a resource, please send me a message!

I'm willing to receive specimens of Diptera, especially Empidoidea, for identification, as long as they are properly mounted or in ethanol. For a group that I lack experience with, I can refer you to the appropriate experts. Please message me if you have a question!
