"I particularly enjoy matching nature enthusiasts with beautiful scenery and birds. Whether it's their first time to experience the iridescent green and cinnamon of the common Green-winged Teal or helping them find their life list Marbled Murrelet, it's a great pleasure to connect people with beauty and a richer understanding of other species and their natural environment."
