I'm a mid-20s biology graduate currently working in scientific illustration. My major passions in life are paleontology, evolutionary biology, birding, and art. I draw dinosaurs a lot, particularly maniraptorans, and intend to become a relatively well-known paleoartist at some point in time.
I also love being out in nature, and would probably revert to the wild if my friends and family actually let me. I am an obsessive birder and an amateur bird photographer. I also enjoy the idea of a self-reliant and self-sustained lifestyle.
My journal is friends-only, but I'm pretty open about adding people, as long as we have something in common and, you know, you're not a total douche. However, please comment if you'd like an add. I typically don't add people when they don't say anything.
Unfortunately I don't update at LJ very much anymore, mostly because the majority of my friends have migrated to other social networking sites across the internet. I'll never leave LJ entirely, but you can also find me at the following locations:
