About me:
I was born and raised in Kane’ohe, O’ahu and I've been interested in birds since primary school. I received my Zoology degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and M.S. degree in Environmental Studies With Concentration in Conservation Biology from Antioch University New England in New Hampshire. I've been involved in conservation, endangered species, and natural resources for the past 22 years in Hawaii, Maine, Micronesia, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Along the way, my passion for birding has taken me to Japan, Canada, Costa Rica, Belize, and Mexico. I did some short-term high school (private, college prep, dormitory) teaching stints covering subjects such as Ecology, Environmental Studies, and Biology at Westtown School in West Chester, PA and Vermont Academy in Saxtons River, VT. Over the past several years, I’ve worked as a group leader for small and large groups (Road Scholar, V.E.N.T., the University of Hawaii at Hilo, Pacific Island Institute, Field Guides, Wings, etc.).
