Positions and Achievements
Hi, my name's Ari. I'm originally from the Chicago area, and I've been birding since I was 8 years old. I've been passionate about birds for most of my life, and I currently attend Villanova University while studying avian malaria in chickadees for my Master's thesis. When I'm not working in the lab, checking on chickadee nests, or drowning in school-related duties, I'm usually out attempting to satisfy a hopeless and incurable birding addiction. I'm also avid about butterflies, herps, odonates, and wild mushrooms.
