He began his lifelong ambition at the mere age of 13, with his first show for a local library in Kanata Ontario, his hometown.
The world-renowned herpetologist, Dr. Francis Cook of Ottawa’s Museum of Natural Sciences, mentored Jeff’s love for reptiles and amphibians. Jeff acted as Director of Education at a CAZA accredited facility, and as an in-field researcher in Central America where he visits once a year through the winter. These visits also offer him further insight and updated video footage to bring back home and to share his new experiences with his audiences, through his exciting and interactive show.’ http://safarijeff.com/bio/
