_DSC5917Welcome! My website is designed to give you an impression of myself, as a scientist and late-20s Midwesterner.

At the moment I live and work in Fargo, North Dakota; home to the North Dakota State University Bison and epicenter of the Red River Valley.

Professionally I am an ecologist, with particular interests in processes that occur at the edges of habitats or ecosystems, and a special eye for arthropods including spiders. I recently left my old post at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and have taken up a postdoc with Jason Harmon and Deirdre Prishmann-Voldseth at NDSU.

As a more complete person I am interested in many things, including history, politics, travel, and any sport that has to do with water. Thanks for visiting!
