I am a naturalist who has been fascinated by invertebrates since I was a kid, particularly spiders, Huntsmen now being my main spider of interest, but I am still learning. I am also a proud member of the Entomological Society of Victoria who enjoys spending time with Peter Marriot every now and then by going moth hunting (Mothing), I'm always the one carrying the generator :p. As a little kid, I got my brother interested in invertebrates too. It all started when we went in the backyard and observed the undergrowth and the insects and spiders that inhabit it. I have learnt so much from so many smart people on iNaturalist and it really motivates me to get out there and find something I haven't seen before, or maybe something that hasn't been photographed or perhaps something new to science.

I am currently working on a huntsman field guide for the Victorian species. If you have any macro shots of any huntsmen in Victoria, feel free to email them to me and I will give credit to you in the book. Don't mind the email, it was made when I was little because I was obsessed with the java computer program :D

Based in Melbourne, Victoria.
