I grew up in Delaware (northeast USA) where I spent most of my youth adventuring around the local patches of forest. I have always loved the adventure, sights, and wildlife offered by the great outdoors. I first went to Ecuador to study tropical ecology and plants of Ecuador during my last undergraduate semester at University of Delaware. I was absolutely captivated and immediately hooked to the plethora of biodiversity harbored by tropical ecosystems. I graduated from U of D with a B.S. in Wildlife Conservation/Ecology and Entomology and returned to Ecuador in search of new adventures. Those adventures have included attending a graduate program in Tropical Ecology (almost finished), freelance naturalist guiding all over the country, swimming with hammerheads in crystal clear ocean and pink river dolphins in an amazonian black water lagoon (among many other creatures in many other types of water),throwing myself off cliffs/waterfalls in countless ways, and finding ~8% of the world’s species of birds (just to name a few). Ecuador has offered countless experiences which have forever changed my life. Now, I want to share this tropical paradise with you!
