James studied wildlife biology at the University of Vermont before working for ten years as a Research Biologist, predominantly with endangered birds.In 2004 he moved to Kenya (his mum's home) and began a safari company, with Kerry Glen (later they were married), that specializes in walking, ornithology, adventure and 'off the beaten path'. Jamie grew up an only child in a patch of beautiful woods in Massachusetts. He developed a love for animal life and nature at an early age. His interests not only led to a degree in Biology but also an early job in Alaska at a Fly Fishing camp.

I was born with a passion for the map's blank spaces. Exploring them is where I feel most alive and am filled with the greatest sense of wonder and intrigue for the world around.As Nabokov once said..."nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land, grew especially strong in spring.” Shall we go forth?
