I currently live in Fairbanks Alaska in a small, off-grid log cabin in the woods north of town. During the summer, I lead wilderness paddling and backpacking trips into the Brooks Range for Arctic Wild (http://www.arcticwild.com). I have a masters degree in wildlife biology and worked for many years as a Research Biologist studying birds before switching over to write, photograph, and guide full-time. Despite living in the far north, I've got a thing for tropical rainforest and spend as much time in South and Central America as I can. I lead occasional birding trips to the tropics and I can be found occasionally on small ships bound for the Southern Ocean and Antarctica.
