He started his career in Nigeria and considers himself fortunate to continue travelling the world learning about birds. His academic background includes a postdoc at the Fitzpatrick Institute of African Ornithology in Cape Town, South Africa; a PhD from the School of Biological Sciences in Christchurch, New Zealand; a MSc from the AP Leventis Ornithological Research Institute in Jos, Nigeria.
