I'm a biologist, writer and wildlife illustrator and photographer based at the University of Montana in Missoula. I study wild birds at the National Bison Range and Yellowstone National Park. I've also spent time doing research on the behavior, 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.
