Daniel is the author of field guides to Edible Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest and California (both Harbour Publishing, 2011 and 2012) and Amazon Mushrooms with Larry Evans (2014). He grew up collecting and eating wild mushrooms in the Alps and has been foraging the last 20 years in the PNW and working as mushroom educator and guide. Daniel trained as a geographer and ecologist and works as a researcher and NGO consultant on environmental issues of the Tibetan Plateau and Himalayas. Working in Tibet, Daniel realized that Tibet's diverse mushroom industry plays a crucial role in rural Tibet and thus has been researching Tibet's ethno-mycology for the last 20 years. With his travel agency MushRoaming LLC he is annually organizing and leading several mushroom focused eco-adventures to Tibet, China, the Amazon, Colombia, the Austrian Alps and the Pacific Northwest.
