About Me

You might be surprised to read that my background is in music. For 19 years, I was a solo independent guitarist and singer/songwriter. I released an E.P., an acoustic album, and a rock single and truthfully saw myself writing, recording, and performing music for the rest of my life.

Right out of the blue, however, I lost my passion for music. I didn’t even want to pick up the guitar anymore. I decided to pick up a camera instead and my love for birds was born. I became obsessed with photographing birds and spent most of my time doing that.

I started a YouTube channel full-time in 2017, releasing photography tutorials, gear reviews, and photography tips. This channel covered every aspect of nature photography, not bird photography specifically.

As my photography developed, so did my love for birds. Birdwatch World was just a natural progression for me. I wanted to spend more time doing what I loved; studying and learning about birds, and spending time in nature with them, watching and photographing them. Though writing blog posts means a lot of time in front of a computer, I do get to spend time out in the field.

I am always on the lookout for new bird watching or bird photography gear, and I love sharing the items I discover that make my experience more enjoyable here on the site. I hope that through sharing my knowledge, I can help you find great birding spots, identify the birds you see more easily, and have a more enjoyable experience.
