Ken has been leading field naturalist outings, or guiding personal birding trips since 2000, and is well versed. His birding expeditions have taken him all over Canada and the USA, as well as trips to Central America and Europe.

An all around naturalist at heart, Ken is knowledgeable in most taxa encountered in Ontario. Ken completed his Master’s in 2013, where he studied ‘reverse migration in the Pelee region’ and now works as a biologist for a consulting firm in Waterloo, ON.

Ken, his girlfriend, and his family are keenly involved in the outdoors and have been since he was a kid. Since 2006, Ken has birded professionally, while since 2011, has been a voting member of the Ontario Bird Records Committee, a sub-committee of the Ontario Field Ornithologists, and more recently (2017) serves on the Board of Directors for the Ontario Field Ornithologists.

Ken is the regional eBird reviewer for Waterloo Region, Perth, Bruce, and Huron Counties, as well as being the sub-regional coordinator for Waterloo Region and Wellington County for the American Birding Associations quarterly journal, North American Birds, and is also the noteworthy bird records compiler for the Kitchener-Waterloo Field Naturalists.
