I have a deep interest in (almost) all things biological, but to be totally honest I am creeped out by caterpillars. It goes back to an early childhood trauma involving a mean older cousin and some tomato hornworms.

My area of expertise would have to be marine invertebrates and algae of the California coast, especially intertidal species. I teach zoology, evolution, marine biology, and marine invertebrate zoology to college and university students in the Monterey Bay area. I also love watching birds and learning how to identify the ones I see.
