I am a naturalist first.
I explore nature through wildlife research, photography, writing, education and wilderness expeditions. Conservation of wildlife and ecosystems is at the core of what I do.
I am also a guide and founder of Wildlife Jouneys. In collaboration with Marven Robinson of the Gitga’at First Nation, I lead trips in the Great Bear Rainforest in pursuit of wild and toothy things like wolves, grizzlies, and spirit bears.
Tired of all the environmental doom and gloom in the news?
Yeah. Me too.
I created a little remedy called the Wild Ones bi-Weekly to delight, surprise and enliven you with fun, fascinating and uplifting stories and photos from the Great Bear Rainforest and other wild places.
Spirit bear tours
During these tours, we explore lush river valleys in search of spirit, or Kermode, bears in a place that National Geographic has called the “Wildest Place in North America.” By travelling with Marven we will spend all of our time in the very heart of spirit bear territory. By staying in Hartley Bay, we will also be supporting the Gitga’at Nation by providing local employment within their traditional territory.Learn more
Rainforest wolf expeditions
In a world dominated by human landscapes, the wilderness of the Great Bear Rainforest is a refuge for wildlife, including the wolf. In the words of eminent scientist Dr. Paul Paquet, “the remote ocean archipelago of the Great Bear Rainforest comprises North America’s most unusual and one of its most pristine wolf populations.”
This is an expedition-style trip offering an extraordinary opportunity to photograph wild wolves in the coastal rainforest of British Columbia.
