ECOTOURISM & ECOLOGY CONSULTING + GUIDING + PHOTOGRAPHY + WEBSITE CONSTRUCTION

BASED IN MADAGASCAR 

I'm a passionate birder, field naturalist, and world traveller, and a trained biologist. I have worked for over 10 years as a guide for Tropical Birding. At the same time, I have co-authored several natural history books, which are shown below. I'm also a founding member of Pitta Environmental Consulting, and a director of 8th Continent Expeditions. For more on consulting services or Madagascar tours, click on the logos below to check out our websites. For website construction, check out this page

Born in the US, I first travelled and worked extensively in the western hemisphere and Europe, before moving to Africa, where I have lived for over a decade. I now call Madagascar home, along with my wife and children.
