In 1973, when I was 12, W. H. Hudson’s delightful “Far Away and Long Ago” fell into my hands. The birds, the nature and the people in those pristine pampas of 1850 were depicted so vividly that I was forever hooked.
Time passed, and in 1984, I got my university degree (equivalent to a BSc) in Biology in the University of Buenos Aires. I worked many years as the manager of the traditional Aves Argentinas (formerly Asociación Ornitológica del Plata) and at the same time, I was unexpectedly called to guide my first group of birdwatchers. Since then, I led many other groups from abroad. More recently, thanks to Internet, I developed strongly the business of individual birders that come from the USA, UK, Europe, South Africa and Australia. Meet some of them in the Testimonials and Last Outings pages!
In 2010 we created the Buenos Aires Bird Club with a friend, to promote birding among local birders. We have outings every month, increasingly booked by foreign travellers too. Visit our page.
Married to a biology teacher, we live with our four kids in San Isidro, a northern suburb of Buenos Aires. We spend much of our spare time in the countryside and we take every opportunity to travel around Argentina and neighbour countries.
