He is the Owner and Lead Guide of ‘Tropical Treks Guided Birding Adventures’ based in Noosa Heads, Queensland, Australia (a region where over 40% of Australia’s bird species are found).

He also has volunteered with Birdlife Australia in providing educational tours of Mary Cairncross Reserve and surveys of the Yandina Wetlands, on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.
Steve's favourite Australian place to visit is Cape York, as he has over 35 years of adventures on ‘The Cape’ and knows this region better than anyone.
Steve has travelled to many places in the world in search of wildlife adventures, including Nepal, Turkey, Egypt, UK, Thailand, Middle East, Europe and more.
His professional accreditations include Ecoguide (Australia), Senior Savannah Guide and Wet Tropics World Heritage Guide. He also holds Wilderness and Remote First Aid certification.
