When not birding, I spend a good deal of my time researching and writing about this passion as well as anything pertaining to Costa Rica, all aspects of travel and tourism, and other topics. Some of the writing categories for which I offer services are:

  • articles for the web and otherwise
  • E-books
  • ghost-writing
  • academic writing
  • grant writing

Please see the following links for some writing and photography samples:

Articles and photography about Costa Rican national parks, birding, and butterflies

Editing experience:

Editor of the monthly newsletter for the Birding Club of Costa Rica since July, 2008.
