Having started with Parks as an Urban Park Ranger in 1983, he is now celebrating his 30th year. He has a degree in Anthropology from SUNY-Albany and has completed graduate studies in Archaeology, Ethnobotany, and Cultural Ecology. He suffered from a fear of insects until taking an entomology class as a graduate student at Queens College in 1993. Mike’s nature photographs have been published in the New York Times, The Conservationist, GEO, Brooklyn Bridge, Universum (Austria), and five books by other authors on the natural history of New York City.
