About

I use this blog primarily to share nature photographs. My full collection is here. I’m also on Twitter and Instagram.

I’m a graduate of Reed College (BA) and Brown University (PhD), and did post-doctoral research at Washington University and the University of Chicago. I taught evolutionary biology at Swarthmore College from 1997 to 2011.

If for some reason you’d like to support my futile projects, you can buy me a virtual coffee via my ko-fi page. Or surprise me with a book from my Amazon wishlist.
