Originally from Niagara Falls, New York, Patrick is a writer and birding guide who has worked in the travel and tourism industry from the cataracts of Niagara to the Peruvian Amazon. A serious birder since the age of 7, this passion has led him to Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, and his current place of residence- Costa Rica. A biologist and systematist by training, Pat has worked on research projects in Colorado, New York, Wyoming, and Washington as well as in Peru. When not looking for birds in Costa Rica, he spends time with his daughter and attempts to practice Chinese martial arts.
