I like to joke that I'm a failed scientist who ended up with a career in music and journalism.

In all seriousness, as a nerdy kid all I wanted to be was a biologist, but life presented a different path. In the end, rather than studying nature, I've frequently found myself recording it and creating musical soundscapes to score my radio documentaries about nature and the environment like The Sound and the Sea ( and Gros Morne: The Bones of the Earth (

I'm thrilled to have found iNaturalist. I'm still as fascinated by wildlife as I always have been, and can spend large amounts of time gazing at minutiae. These days, I spend a lot of time with my small macro lens, which helps me attempt amateurish but hopefully intelligible closeups of beetles and other insects. Learning every day on here and grateful for the input of experts.
