I am a biologist and physician who has been fascinated with the natural world since I was a child. I have written two nature books (The Naturalist's Year and Velvet Mites and Silken Webs) and co-authored a more technical book, Self-Organization in Biological Systems.  Recent work is an eBook available at the iTunes Bookstore.


I graduated from Harvard College, then received an M.D. degree from Harvard Medical School.  Later, I completed a Ph.D. in Animal Behavior from Cornell University. I am fascinated by the beauty and complexity of our living world, and devoted a portion of my career to studying honey bee behavior.


Currently, I work as a physician and photographer/illustrator. The rest of my time is devoted to my children, crafts (woodturning and 3D printing) and exploring the natural world.


In years past, I traveled with my brother, a surgeon, to places such as Nigeria, Guatemala and Bolivia where we provide volunteer surgical care as a part of the EarthWide Surgical Foundation.
