I am a freelance ornithologist mainly working offshore to survey birds at sea. Most of my life has been spent in Edinburgh but I have also lived in Denmark and Argentina. I love to travel particularly to see the wildlife and varied habitats and have traveled to all continents (except Antarctica) over the years. I am also a keen Argentinian Tango dancer and play classical guitar. I enjoy meeting people from around the world and learning languages and can communicate reasonably well in Spanish, Danish and French and also have learned (and forgotten) Manadarin Chinese. I would like to live in an environmentally friendly way but that isn't always easy when travelling. I like to support organisations that are protecting wildlife and the habitats they depend upon.
