About / Bio
I'm a wildlife ecologist interested in hollow-nesting birds, blood-sucking parasites, introduced predators, land snails, and conservation of endangered species. I study the endangered forty-spotted pardalote in Tasmania, which like to nest in the dead branches at the tops of trees. So lately I've taken up tree-climbing to access their nests. And I've discovered a whole world of rope systems and foliage invertebrates to explore.

I'm a product of British Columbia, Canada, but live in Australia these days. I've particularly enjoyed walking in the Tasmanian alpine and diving walls off Vancouver Island. Most of my research has been in forests and woodlands of BC and Tasmania.
