I was born and bred in North Carolina. Currently, I live in Delémont, Switzerland.

Back in the day, I got a PhD in Entomology. I conducted field research in Mexico and some bench studies in Germany, hence the pics from those two places, particularly of plants and insects. My work takes me a lot of places as well. For example, I was based in Rome for four years, so now I have a lot of pictures of Italy.

    "If Melanie were a stock, I'd invest in her now. This young woman is simply bursting with potential. She has a great eye for capturing the very small world around us, and for adding a human touch to the one at large. I hope one day she'll autograph my copy of National Geographic with her shot on the cover. Keep up the good work!"
