I am a naturalist and conservation biologist living in Paraná, Brazil.

I like knowing that my records become part of an open-access data repository (GBIF) that helps us understand more about the other species for whom Earth is also home.

I have a pretty good knowledge of European, West African and Brazilian birds. I also enjoy learning more about all sorts of other animals, plants and other organisms. I try to be conservative about identifying organisms only to the taxonomic level I'm confident of, but I welcome corrections to any of my IDs.

Most of my recent observations are from the Atlantic Forests and Caatinga of Brazil, but when I can I am slowly adding older observations, especially from Ghana and Liberia. I tend to use iNaturalist primarily for my non-bird observations, and for observations that involve interactions between species.
