About me

Over the past 30 years I've gone from a kid discovering the world of insects at the age of six, to graduating Iowa State University with a BS in Entomology at 26.  Four years later, I found myself living in Des Moines, IA working as a bar manager, (engineering) a way to (make/grow) a career out of Entomocentric Cuisine (see my edible insect website here). (In between), my love and curiosity for insects has been fueled by amazing teachers & mentors, an (amazing) mom, and an unforgivable passion for an unknown (world). My mission today, tomorrow, and for the rest of my life is to expose the world of insects to those who seek it.  Macrophotography can take you places you've never been before, so welcome!  Enjoy! And, thank you for allowing me to show you what I see.

Feel free to bug me!
