"I'm an avid herpetologist, bird-watcher and wildlife photographer. I believe reptiles are some of the most misunderstood animals. I enjoy helping people overcome their fear and learn why reptiles are important to healthy ecosystems. Snakes, in particular, have been unfairly represented in literature and the media."
