I enjoy creating, expanding and updating pages on Hawai'i and Spiders. I live in Hilo town, on the Big Island of Hawai'i, and am mostly interested in Salticidae, especially the interface between synanthropic/anthropogenic species and our beautiful endemic species (e.g., Havaika). I also have a great love of botany. I upload a lot of media to the Wikimedia commons as well (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:ListFiles/AlaskaDave25)

You can find me on the Salticidae listserv, Bugguide.net, Spiders.us, or via email. My pbase: http://www.pbase.com/rugbydave.
