Born at home into the house his father built in rural Vermont, Ronan has spent his adult years immersed in the natural world. Biologist turned photographer and filmmaker, he spent 2011 in the canopy studying wild chimpanzees in Uganda Africa through Harvard University, which formulated his desire to use visual storytelling as way to reach a greater audience. Ronan has spent 2 weeks filming puffins on a remote island in Scotland and recently he spent one year living inside Yellowstone National Park working on an extensive photography project for National Geographic Magazine documenting the live of wolves. Based in Montana, Ronan has an intimate knowledge of the Rocky Mountain ecosystems. A contributor to National Geographic Magazine, his photographs have hung on the walls of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and his film work has aired on PBS Nature. When Ronan isn't working, he's exploring the mountains around his home in western Montana.
