I am primarily a birder, located in Echo Bay, Ontario, but I'm using iNaturalist to identify and document every other taxa I come across as I try to expand my knowledge. I am slowly learning how to ID these non-bird taxas on my own, but still rely on iNaturalist to help for taxa that I'm not familiar with. Note that I'm often naturalizing while walking my two large, energetic dogs on leashes, so sometimes my photos turn out blurry or lack the features needed for identification, and that's okay with me.

For work, I am the Executive Director for the The Kensington Conservancy, a charitable land trust located in Desbarats, Ontario. Your financial support can help further our conservation efforts in the St. Joseph Channel area. I also provide guided birding tours within the Algoma District and area with my business Dorscht Birding.

While I don't get to travel too often, I love exploring protected areas such as national and provincial parks, conservation areas, and privately-owned nature preserves (such as land trust properties). I'm grateful that I get to work in an industry that is focused on creating new protected areas!
