Born and raised in Tampa, Florida where I currently reside. I've been an active outdoorsmen and interested in natural history since I was a little kid. Birding and fossil collecting were my primary hobbies as a child. I'm still very much involved in Birding but am also keenly interested in Butterflies, Dragonflies and Damselflies. It is not unusual for me to drive across the state on short notice for the chance to see a rare bird or butterfly. I have been a eBird reviewer for the state of Florida since 2008 and also served both as a board member and secretary for the Florida Ornithological Society.

I'm a new user to iNaturalist (May 2022) and currently in the very long slow process of uploading all my photos and sightings from the past 25 years to the website. I'm also interested in helping to verify Bird, Butterfly and Dragonfly/Damselfly photos taken in Florida. My interest and experience with birds also includes all of the Americas especially the Neotropics.

One of my new projects is to survey for dragonfly species in areas of Florida that have not been well studied or explored.
