I am a professional birding guide, educator, lecturer, and author focusing on nature-based wellness programming based out of the western Philadelphia suburbs in Downingtown, Pennsylvania.

A life-long explorer of wonders of the natural world, my obsession landed on avifauna a few decades ago, and I have devoted the majority of my free-time to understanding the status and distribution of birds in my state, and the nearby Delaware Bayshore (coastal Delaware). I am especially interested in bird migration patterns, and marvel at witnessing active migration, and volunteer as a hawk counter for Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in PA.

I am excited to expand my knowledge-base through iNaturalist, and am grateful to fellow birder, and naturalist extraordinaire, "Gyrllfalcon", for inspiring, and teaching me, to use it!
