I’m trans and autistic.

I’m a queer nature nerd from Northern Virginia with a strong interest in orthopterans, especially grasshoppers, as well as reptiles and amphibians, with a focus on salamanders. I’m also a big fan of the genus Smilax and ID a lot of Smilax observations. I am very much an amateur photographer. I also love wetland ecology.

I have an ever-growing backlog of photos I haven’t yet found the time to post to iNat. I will sometimes post many observations at a time without locations and go and add the locations later.

I mostly identify observations of orthopterans, but I also identify a lot of herp observations, and recently I’ve been identifying (or at least learning to identify) various myriapods, woodlice, ants, beetles, and whatever other taxa catch my interest.

Covid hasn’t gone away. I got Covid in May 2022 and it took me several months to recover. GET VACCINATED and BOOSTED (if you haven’t already) and WEAR A MASK!
