I believe time outdoors improves our health and happiness.

A great passion of mine is learning about all creatures in our world and how they interact in complex ecosystems. I create videos and educational entertainment to help others learn about our world as well as demonstrate methods for enjoying the health benefits of the outdoors.

Most of my studies of zoological topics have concentrated on ichthyology (but I dabble in most anything within biology.) I've always been a casual herper and I've recently gotten more into birding. I've also been a fisher for 30+ years; the muskellunge is my favorite fish to catch.

It pleases me when I'm able to contribute data to a study, whether it's for government work, within the private sector or as a citizen scientist.
