I was born in the sahara desert of Morocco in 1986, having a Berber father and mother. I have been an enthusiastic birder since I was 15 years old and have been bird watching all over Morocco. I have been working a several years of guiding for other companies and have led many very successful tours to all over Morocco. In 2013 I created a bird guide company in Morocco called Gayuin Birding Tours to be able to offer my own tours and activities. I speak English, French, Spanish, Italian, Arabic and Berber.

I've birded on an off since I was six. I've visited 40 countries, not all for birding sadly and lived in the middle east, North Africa, Great Britain, Trinidad and the United States. I'm an avid sound recorder and have posted thousands of recordings on Xeno-canto (http://www.xeno-canto.org/recordist.php?id=PWDLINYMKL) and my photos are on my Flicker page (http://www.flickr.com/photos/madbirder). I now guide for Birdtour Asia.
