I'm a biologist, writer, wildlife illustrator, and photographer. In Montana, I have studied wild birds at the National Bison Range and Yellowstone National Park. I've also spent time doing research on the behaviour, genetics and evolution of zebras in Kenya, mice in Eastern Europe, and cuckoo finches and honeyguides in Zambia. At the moment, I'm writing an illustrated popular science book about bird family life for Princeton University Press.
I started leading nature and birdwatching tours as a high school student in Singapore, and have continued pursuing and sharing my fascination with all things wild as an undergraduate at Princeton and Oxford, and as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Cambridge.
During my time earning a Ph.D. in biology at Harvard, I spent time leading Harvard Natural History Museum expeditions to Tanzania, and Central Asia. I also led trips for Lindblad and National Geographic Expeditions to the Galapagos Islands, Panama, and Costa Rica.
For fun, I enjoy birding, exploring the mountains on foot, on skis, and on horseback. In order to do my bit for conservation, I share the wonders of Nature through foraging, cooking, photography, painting, writing, and radio.
