Matt is an environmental educator at the Lincoln Park Zoo by trade, so he is constantly teaching people and learning about the natural world. He came to birding by way of taking an ornithology course during his graduate studies in Michigan. The course nurtured Matt’s birding curiosity into a full-on avian obsession. After moving with his wife, Vickie, to Chicago in 2013, their primary avocation has become birding all the spots that Chicago and Northwest Indiana has to offer. They’ve since traveled to other birding hotspots around the country, chasing rarities and exploring the amazing natural areas that the United States has to offer. Matt truly enjoys helping people explore the natural world and showing them the birds that live there.
