I am a fine artist and clinical therapist by profession. I grew up in Northern Wisconsin and spent the majority of my childhood following behind my Pops, a grade schoolteacher of 50 years, as he taught about the natural world; plants we could eat, which ones made you itch or healed the same.

A life-threatening illness I live with honed the compass he gave me and after adjunctive treatments left impairment in my dominant hand and chest. It was a gift of a digital camera - a Fuji - that shifted the how paradigm into the best blend of physical therapy for my particular interests and hobbies.

The natural world feeds my curiosity endlessly. It isn't hyperbole to say the 'small things' saved me. They do. They kept me here. They keep me grounded. Best I can do in return is give them a voice and a hand through "citizen science".

Because of my current profession and the population with which I work - the chosen privacy settings are correct. Those set to private are manageable to ID, however, the setting itself is not a negotiable.

No, it doesn't affect my contributions as worthless, nor does it negate the effort to contribute to the whole. It is personal setting option for a reason, yeah?

Therein and henceforth, please use the following as a PIN location for all "private" observations:


Dragonflies have been my focus of learning the last three seasons. My lifelong love is and always has been for the nocturnal creatures, Moths being the favorite taxonomy.

My family defines me as a "perpetual student". It's pretty accurate, and I don't hate that. Formally I continue in my education in both Behavioral Health and Entomology.

Happy trails, y'all! We'll be lookin' out for ya!
