Originally from New Mexico, I'm a graduate student at Louisiana State University pursuing a master's in entomology. I am currently working on several projects in the Acmaeoderini, a beautiful and diverse tribe of jewel beetles (Buprestidae), particularly within the difficult A. puchella complex as well as within the "primitive" Nearctic groups.

While a buprestophile by trade, I'm also enamoured with several other insect groups, namely the byrrhoids and pentatomids. I also try to collect just about any beetle or bug species I encounter.
