Writer and entomologist, author of Insectpedia (2022), Wasps: The Astonishing Diversity of a Misunderstood Insect (2021), lead author of the Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of North America (2007), and co-author of the second edition of Insects Did It First (2018) with Gregory S. Paulson. Currently living in Leavenworth, Kansas, USA.

I have a strong commitment to elevating BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, and other marginalized demographics in natural science disciplines.

My major interests are in preserving biodiversity in urban and suburban settings, and initiating an international "rights to nature" movement.

NOTE: One location in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA, east of the end of Pikes Peak Avenue, has been bulldozed to make way for a new housing development. It was an old landfill that was restoring itself as a shortgrass prairie with two watercourses along its edges. I cannot communicate how devastating this is, as I documented over 750 taxa of animal life there, within easy walking distance of my home.

We must begin protecting wild locations within urban and suburban settings, and say no to developers whose only interest is monetary profit and "growth."
