Falconer, creator and writer.  I am thrilled to be the co-writer and designer of the Falconer’s Creed.  This project gave me the opportunity to combine my love for falconry with my passion for Intangible Cultural Heritage.

As a published writer it brings me great joy to co-author the Falconer’s creed.  Residing on Vancouver Island I am blessed to be able to enjoy the ocean, beautiful landscapes and abundant nature.  I have the pleasure of hunting my birds during our mild hunting season, often during sunny, warm weather, allowing for pleasurable hawking days.  I have a passion for Intangible Cultural Heritage and I believe it is our historical and cultural right to participate in the sport of falconry.  I have been fortunate to learn from knowledgeable people and to be involved in a sport that partners me with nature’s best.

The Falconer’s Creed is a labour of love, created to showcase the beliefs of falconers worldwide, to display the tenants of our universal sport and to bring together a  community.  It is our collective responsibility to see falconry thrive.  Securing the future of the sport I love begins with me.  I am grateful to share with you this beautiful art piece, a testament to falconry’s past, present and future.
