So I got home from work and found this bug on my light fixture by the front door not sure what it is.
I'm sure someone here will know what it is.

It's a katydid. Possibly either the common true katydid or else the the angular winged katydid, hard to tell with the wing damage but I'm leaning towards the former due to the round head shape.

There are a number of species that look like the angular winged but it does look like Microcentrum. You need a shot of the front margin of the pronotum. It's not the species known as the true katydid, that's a very different looking animal.
