Connor’s fascination with the natural world started at a very early age. It’s no surprise that he went on to study ecology and habitat conservation in one of the most renowned nature colleges in the United Kingdom.

Once he completed his degree, Connor went on to work across the country learning about the plants and fungi that make up the diverse habitats of England. It was during these years that he developed his passion for medicinal and mind-altering organisms. 

Connor’s obsession with nature and its many intriguing fruits never stopped growing. He now lives in Europe and spends the majority of his time writing about sacred plants and fungi. When he’s not working on his passion, you’ll find him out in the wilderness somewhere hiking, fishing, or admiring the local flora and fauna.
