Hey, I'm Andrew. I really like plants (especially trees)! I recently graduated from Lehigh University w/ a Masters in Biology, and I am currently working as a Utility Arborist for the Davey Resource Group in the Greater Philadelphia area. I enjoy planting and preserving as many trees as possible in the Philly area. I also volunteer with PA iMapInvasives.

I recently made a video about the Spotted Lanternfly, a new invasive insect in the United States that is causing many problems in Pennsylvania. Check it out here!

I created a dichotomous key and video guide for North American Sumacs (Rhus spp.).

I also made a video about the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive insect that has killed tens of millions of North American Ash trees. Check that out here!

I make educational nature and science videos on TikTok . Here, I hope show younger generations the beauty of nature and science.
Here are a few of my TikToks:
The stinky, warm flowers of the Eastern Skunk Cabbage
Going on an Adventure to find a super rare goose in Philly!

I've made a few other biology-related videos:
