Blast to the past
Born in England, raised in Africa. Wandered around Europe for a bit. Went to university and studied biology. Then I came to the States and studied more biology at the University of Oregon, where I developed skills in data analysis and advanced statistics.
After leaving Oregon, I led natural history and photography tours to the Amazon rainforest, culminating in the world's first travel guide to the Amazon, published 1997, with a third edition in 2007.
I love to write about the biggest jungle of them all, the Amazon rainforest. The third edition of my book The Amazon: The Bradt Travel Guide was published in August 2007.
My second travel guide, Amazon Highlights
, was published February 2012 by the UK's Bradt Travel Publications. To share my love of the rainforest, I published my first website Jungle Photos
in November 2000.
I've built on that experience to develop a unique perspective to the web and social media - a depth of experience I bring to bear in my professional work developing social media solutions.
