I got my BS in Entomology at UC Davis in 2017. These days I work for CDFA, pinning flies and collecting insects. Wherever I go, I am constantly looking out for any small creatures that come into my field of vision, to observe and photograph. I am thinking about doing research on the behavior and functional morphology of mantises and other arthropods with raptorial forelimbs.

Comments, identifications, and questions on my observations are always welcome and appreciated!
