Daniel grew up collecting and eating wild mushrooms in the Alps and has been foraging for over 25 years in the PNW and beyond, sharing his enthusiasm as a mushroom educator and guide and as past Puget Sound Mycological Society vice-president.

In his presentations he is combining his stunning photography (check out mushroaming.com) with a blend of entertaining stories and scientific information. Having been in love with mushrooms since early childhood Daniel managed to bend his career as an ecologist and geographer focused on High Asia towards researching rural Tibet’s enormous fungal economy.

His Cordyceps research has been featured in The Economist, National Geographic, New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, BBC World Service etc.
