About

I use this blog primarily to share nature photographs. My full collection is on Flickr.

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.

I’m also on Twitter and Instagram.

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.

If you’re looking to hire somebody like me, I’m interested. I’ve had all my shots.
