A lifelong naturalist, I have been chasing butterflies for as long as I can remember - with a net when I was a kid and with a camera when I grew up. Most recently, I've been focusing my iNat pursuits on moths. They tend to hold still better. ;)

In 2019, I helped found the non-profit Urban Butterfly Initiative (www.urbanbutterflies.org), whose goal is to promote and assist in the transformation of urban green spaces into beautiful low-cost, low-maintenance butterfly habitat to increase biodiversity and conservation, create engagement and educational experiences, and provide scientific and research opportunities. This transformation also usually results in decreased maintenance time & money as well as a reduction of fossil fuel use compared to grassy lawns.

My profile pic is a Common Buckeye tile mosaic with a six foot wingspan that I designed, cut, and installed in our entryway.
