I know that I can create the biggest impact possible when I help people have breakthroughs inside an intimate mentoring relationship.
For this reason, I have a few opportunities opening for mentoring. If you're interested, please book a time to talk with me on Skype.
I'm happy to discuss anything that you're interested in related to any of my areas of expertise.
My strengths and passions include:
Problem solving challenges in your studies of bird language & wildlife tracking
Pushing the edges of your grounding as a naturalist
Working with mentors & leaders of nature connection movements
Using nature to facilitate personal growth
“The natural world is a big place;Brian opens up that big world and offers a number of paths through an often dense forest of information by getting to know each individual he works with, that goes for both his subject matter in the wilderness, and the people he would like to connect to it.” - Liz Crain (Land Steward)
“One on one, Brian is thoughtful.He cares. He listens with intention. He asks the sensory expanding questions, the questions that stretch me. It never ends. Every moment is an opportunity to learn, engage your senses, and connect to the stories that are always happening out there. We can observe these stories anywhere- in open spaces and in the city.” - Eric Himelfarb (Farmer, Land Steward, Nature Connection Mentoring)
Discovering Bird Language...
"I used to think I would never understand bird language. Then, I started working with Brian. Brian is a skilled naturalist, and mentor, who can simplify the most complex bird interaction into their key components, so that novices like me can understand them.
Now, thanks to Brian, I feel confident in interpreting the interactions I see in my backyard.
I'm also an anthropologist who works on how hunter-gatherer children learn about the natural world, and I have no doubt that Brian's lessons will make invaluable contributions to my professional research."
- Sheina Lew-Levy, survivalist, PhD candidate, University of Cambridge
Nature Awareness For Personal Growth...
"Brian's experience is rich and diverse,and knows when to feed you that nugget of info to keep you stoked, or that question that throws you further down the rabbit hole.
He has helped me use birds as a mirror to my relationship dynamics, so that going into the natural world is richer in teachers who guide me to my truth, my strength."
- Steve Leckman, naturalist, tracker, and mentor
Maximize Your Naturalist Skills...
"You have an incredible ability to listen and ask really good questions!
You also really put your time in, you speak from lots of experience.
You have filled in my gaps and asked me questions that I couldn't not go out and find the answers." - Michaela Macdonald, passionate naturalist, instructor and mentor of children
