brought me into the natural world throughout my life, and
has been instrumental in my conservation career. As founder
of Conservation Imaging, Inc., I strive to to do all I can
to promote wise use and conservation of our planet. My
commitment to cloud forest conservation stems from my
combined love of birds, mountains, and tropical America. My philosophy
is that life is short, so let's not waste it. Let's make a
real and lasting difference.

parents took me polar camping in a blizzard when I was six
months old. They have been unable to coerce me into
emerging from the forests, mountains, glaciers, caves, and
islands for more than a few weeks since. I have a deep
love and appreciation for vascular plants, microclimates and
unique habitats, as well as observing patterns in
nature. As a result, I have spent the last 13 years of
my life working with threatened and endangered vascular
species, the habitats that host them, and the human
communities living in association with the respective
natural areas. My philosophy is to connect people with
place, place with people, for within is found a bond that

have been working as a conservation biologist for years in
Southern Appalachia, Costa Rica, and Hawaii. The
opportunity to help spearhead a project of such importance
as this--preserving the cloud forest and caves of Cerro El
Amay--and to explore it's vast and uncharted ecosystems in
a true, pioneering way, is the project of a lifetime.
At Cerro El Amay, We have the special privilege of working
with the cloud forest villages of La Gloria and Laj
Chimel. Like us, they embrace the concept of
sustainable community development and have hosted several
of our projects in the name of cloud forest conservation.
Not many people have the opportunity to save such a
precious and vast resource for future generations. For
these reasons, I volunteer my time to help Conservation
Imaging preserve the El Amay Cloud Forest
