Professional Coleopteran acupuncturist, senescent skateboarder, washed up punk rocker, insect taxidermist, abominable Elvis impersonator & rattlesnake fiend… Tarleton State University grad 2022 (Gen Biology) I am currently compiling results in a study on the emerald ash borer and its relationship with the parasitoid wasp C fumipennis in Tarrant County, Texas through a grant provided by Texas Academy of Science. I currently maintain a collection of beetles that numbers 30,000 & growing. My first word was “bug” & I haven’t shut up about them since. I reside in the western crosstimbers region of north Texas with my wife & son, a few geriatric snakes & an antisocial cat

The man who believes that the secrets of the world are forever hidden lives in mystery and fear. Superstition will drag him down. The rain will erode the deeds of his life. But that man who sets himself the task of singling out the thread of order on the tapestry will by the decision alone have taken charge of the world and it is only by such taking charge that he will effect a way to dictate the terms of his own fate.
