I have been interested in nature all my life, from as early as I can remember. I have a particular fascination with lepidoptera, raising butterflies and moths from caterpillars when I was young, and attracting them to my garden. My interest now is mostly in photography, identification, and distribution. I am a member of NABA and have been a regional coordinator for BAMONA since 2012. All my lepidoptera observations are in the BAMONA database. Additional strong interests are in gardening (camellias, magnolias, native plants), hiking, birds, trees, and astronomy.

Having grown up in a military family, I have lived in different places in my life--Florida, Georgia, Texas, Arizona, California, Washington, Michigan, Massachusetts, England, Germany, and Turkey. I graduated from the University of Arizona. I worked as a hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey mostly in water-resources data collection and investigative studies, and reports. I retired in 2011 and split my time between a home base in Florida, and Alabama and Tennessee.
