Professional biting arthropod hunter in California. 13+ years in vector identification / research.

Doctorate in Urban Mosquito Ecology. Tick enthusiast. Seriously, I'm a tick professional but I would rather ID mosquitoes. From a vector-borne disease standpoint - ticks are more interesting.

Dabbles in Kissing Bugs. Former vector-borne disease epidemiologist, focused on VBDs in Maine - yes, lots and lots of ticks. RPCV Mozambique. T1D. Traveler (in non-Pandemic times). Public. Health. Nerd. I am #MedEntoAF.

Love native flora and fauna. Working on improving my macro-photography skills.

I love most invertebrates, terrestrial and aquatic. Fungi is fascinating. Always super excited to learn about new species in my area. Stay curious people.

Top 3 groups for ID specialty: Culicidae, Ixodida, Triatominae.

Working on my fleas. They're a pain.

Additionally, nobody is infallible, including myself. #alwayslearning
