"I found a word in Malay which seems to describe my ‘occupation’- Pengembara. A kind of traveler, adventurer, backpacker, vagabond- all the above.

My background is in Cell biology and genetics. I thoroughly enjoy microbiology and the study of tropical diseases though having first traveled to the Peruvian Amazon in 2004, I was bitten by the bugs. And since I’ve been traveling off and on to whatever rainforests I can reach, the more pristine and untouched the better. Being surrounded by the natural biota has led to me to diversify my interests into zoology, rainforest ecology,and the interesting yet challenging disciplines of tropical systematics and taxonomy. Only recently have I gotten into macrophotography, but I find it immensely satisfying and hope to continue traveling and photographing for many years yet, since each new discovery fuels the existing passion." - Paul
