Dan is one of the founding partners of BiOME Consulting (and of this magazine), and is obsessed with nature and the outdoors. Born into a family of naturalists and growing up in a botanic garden provided little in the way of alternative lifestyles and much in the way of opportunity! Dan is fascinated by anything natural from moths and dragonflies, to mammals and sharks. This love of nature led him through an ecology degree and into ecological consultancy and tour leading. Dan has now visited and worked in nearly 60 countries around the world and everyday his admiration for the natural world grows, and his enthusiasm for learning strengthens.
