Dipterist first, photographer second. I keep uncropped versions of all of my photos, so let me know if you would like to use one.

I like flies. My professional experience is limited, but I have a curated collection and create resources for fly identification:

The Fly Guide. If you have suggestions, questions, or want to contribute to a resource, please send me a message!

I am currently looking for specimens of several spp. including the Physocephala floridana dark form, this undescribed Xylomya species, and Sciapus platypterus in the USA. I'm also willing to receive specimens of various other groups, especially Dolichopodidae, for identification, as long as they are properly mounted or in ethanol. Please message me for more information!
