For more than 25 years, I have been fascinated by the world of reptiles and amphibians.

My earliest inspiration came from a Burmese python that I had the pleasure of meeting at school when I was just 8. A few years later, having found out I was allergic to fur!!! I brought home my first pet… a garter snake.

My fascination deepened until a pivotal moment came in 2006 during a trip to Peru when I encountered my first wild pitviper – the “Loro machaco“.

From that moment on I have been adventuring, exploring wild places, and discovering new species!

My interest in snakes was sparked by meeting Rowland at University where we were Undergrads back in 1997 studying Ecology & Conservation.

My journey in tropical ecology took me to the rainforest of Peru, where I carried out several research projects in the Tambopata National Reserve, and the Manu Biosphere Reserve.

One of my research interests was the effect of human activity, such as logging or hunting, on biodiversity.

Among my wildlife encounters, I was privileged to meet fer-de-lance, bushmaster, and loro machaco the green tree viper… and live to tell the tale!
