I worked as a veterinary technician for more than 12 years before having to give it up for family reasons. To get my animal "fix", I started taking photos of all the critters I could find in my area and re-discovered my love of spiders.

I love all kinds of spiders, but Lycosids (Wolf Spiders) are my absolute favorite. I've been studying wolf spiders in my state of North Carolina for the past few years, and expanding my knowledge of species found in North America over the past year or so. I'm always happy to help with identifications if I'm able; please feel free to send me a message if I miss any mentions.

I'm also particularly fond of reptiles and amphibians, but my knowledge is pretty limited to herps found in NC or those found as pets.
