Personal Statement

I first fell in love with Belize at age 17, when I visited with my college Tropical Biology class in the mid-eighties. I was instantly hooked!

Between the incredible bird diversity (e.g. 8 species of Parrots), the friendly culture and the overall seething mass of living tropical ecology in plain view, Belize was, and still is, begging to be explored. The incentive to return again and again is clear.

Overall, having the lucky pleasure and good fortune to visit, bird watch and explore the wonderful country of Belize for the past 3 decades has been a true joy. It is this joy for Belize, the love of its people and birds that I am delighted to share openly with my clients, so they too can get a taste of Belize's culture, its tropical forests and all that they offer.
