Jack grew up in Stoke-on-Trent, U.K. where he spent most of his childhood tracking deer and watching nesting birds in the woodlands. While working as head ranger for the Deer Study Center, he earned a bachelor’s degree in animal behavior and welfare from the University of Chester. Simultaneously, he completed a ranger course in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.
Since graduating in 2011, Jack has worked as a marine biologist on Quebec’s St. Lawrence estuary, a caribou conservation officer in Jasper National Park, a guide in Costa Rica and as an ecologist and guide throughout the Scottish Highlands and Islands. In Cairngorms National Park, he worked as a reindeer herder who monitored the herd and led groups to explore the mountains and surrounding wildlife. Jack also worked as an ecologist on the Hebridean isles of Skye and Islay and as a wildlife filmmaker with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the Scottish Wildlife Trust across the far northwest.
Jack continues to pursue a career in conservation as a fully qualified deer manager and bird ringer (aka bird bander). He is passionate about conserving nature and helping people understand all levels of our environment. Jack has a real love for the wildness of the mountains and is a keen wildlife photographer. He is happiest when hiking in the mountains or running on the fells.
