Note: a recent decision affected my curator status, but multiple iNat community members and I independently proved the decision was wrong. I've been the main bee and wasp taxonomy curator and resolved a variety of different flags. If you support me to be a curator please add your username here or ask me to. Thanks very much in advance.

I study, observe, and identify bees, wasps, and additional wildlife, and have completed a related Biology B.S. and M.S. I'm a contributor to pollinator surveys in New York State and additional locations, led a Thacher State Park bioblitz, briefly volunteered at a museum insect collection, and have added complete iNat Places species checklists for NYS and other locations. My main interest is the discovery process of making first online identifications of described, undescribed, or rare species, and recording new species locality records. I'm a volunteer curator and provide corrections to BugGuide (Contributing Editor), GBIF, Catalouge of Life, and iNaturalist. I'm also interested in urban ecology and sustainability-related subjects such as urban greenspace habitats, sustainable cities, and the natural rewilding of abanded built environments. If viewing my photos, I recommend the has photos filter. Feel free to message. I check all notifications although sometimes after a delay.
