Outside my professional interests in wildlife filmmaking, teaching, writing, and speaking, I have many other passionate interests, including:

  • Environmental activism and animal welfare

  • My family, fathering, the welfare of my wife and three daughters

  • Comedy and humor (and humor as a way of taking things more seriously!)

  • Dying and death, end-of-life decisions, palliative care, secular humanism, time management and effectiveness

  • Aging gracefully, health and physical fitness, plant-based diets

  • The Founding Fathers, Abraham Lincoln

  • Words and language, wisdom literature

  • Personal transformation, mission statements, how people can transform themselves against all odds, and why some people are successful and fulfilled while others are not.
