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. Most of my lepidoptera observations are in the BAMONA database, but I am in the process of duplicating some over to inaturalist. 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.
