Frank is president and co-founder of Sagebrush Tours Inc.. Frank hails from Vancouver but lives with his wife and two children in the Okanagan. As a city boy, Frank was different. He liked the outdoors and especially a nearby creek. He spent countless hours wading in and out of the creek, overturning stones, and picking up anything that moved! His love of nature and wild places has remained a passion throughout life. Frank has also gained a real appreciation for wine after moving to the Okanagan. The wine from the Okanagan is world acclaimed and finding more and more devotees from around the world. On a wine tour with Sagebrush Tours you are treated to both a knowledge of fine wine and the landscape. No other tour provider has this expertise and insight.
Frank worked for 31 years as a Park Naturalist with Alberta Parks. He founded the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory in 1993 and was a leader in the effort to establish the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation. He is an accomplished natural and cultural history interpreter/trainer with expertise in the boreal forest, Canadian Rocky Mountains and now Okanagan Valley. His enthusiasm for the natural world and wine is contagious. You will see.
