I live in North Vancouver, British Columbia - throwing distance from mountains, ocean and wilderness that provide endless opportunity to experience life and appreciate nature. I can often be found exploring the woods in Lynn Canyon with my dog Sprocket (although she would argue we are hunting squirrels), mountain biking somewhere in the local mountains or up at the crack of dawn stalking wildlife with a rather large telephoto lens.
If I am not lost in the woods somewhere I can typically be found at Simon Fraser University where I am studying as a master's student at the School of Resource and Environmental Management and the Coastal Marine Ecology and Conservation lab.
I have traveled extensively over the past two decades; living in Kenya, the Netherlands and Australia along the way. Every time I return home I am reminded of how unique this place is - the coast of British Columbia is without doubt one of the most beautiful and wild places on earth. Its continued natural and wild existence is in our hands - and we have an obligation as arguably the most intelligent species here (although sometimes it certainly doesn't appear that way) to conserve and protect it.

1. an individual committed to the study and conservation of nature and wildlife (a biologist).
2. an individual who rejects mythology and accepts that the scientific laws of nature provide the best explanation (understatement) for the existence of the cosmos (an atheist).
