I'm an ecologist and an entomologist, studying ants and other arthropods, and their complex relationship with their environment. I love exploring nature with other people, and especially exposing new people to the amazing biodiversity that is everywhere around us. I organize BioBlitzes in the South Bay - we just passed 1,000 species in 17 events - https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/south-bay-bioblitzes
