"I enjoy equipping birding enthusiasts with the knowledge and skills needed to better appreciate their natural environment. Whether it's the first time to experience the iridescence of a Green-winged Teal or adding the Marbled Murrelet to a life-list, it's a great pleasure to connect people with beauty through a richer understanding of birds in their natural environment."
