My name is Jeremy and I’m very interested in plants and insects, their interactions and co-evolution, as well as ecology, paleoecology, paleontology, geology, evolution, and the history of life on earth. I have a dual-major BA in biology and geology, and may one day pursue a PhD in ecology and evolutionary biology.
I reside in rural southeast Michigan and the majority of my observations occur in this area. I grew up on a small family farm where I spent a lot of time playing in the dirt, tasting dirt, tasting strange plants, poking plants, getting poked by plants, bothering insects, getting bothered by insects, watching PBS, and in general taking an interest in the natural world around me. In the sixth grade I got laughed at for declaring “NOVA” as my favorite TV show, and I think Sir David Attenborough is the most interesting man in the world.
I get around a bit and always keep an eye out for interesting new things wherever I go. One of my goals is to visit all 59 “National Parks” within the United States (currently at 46), as well as national parks within other countries whenever possible (thus far including Canada, Spain, and Taiwan). I also dig other national and state parks, and any other places that have been officially designated as protected areas because they are so damn cool. I also like to coerce my wife to hike miles against her will and camp in inclement conditions in order to see elusive wildlife and obscure geologic features.
