Christian Geissler was born and raised on the west coast of Canada. As a child, he always had a passion for the ocean and the incredible wildlife it contains. This passion led him to study at the University of Victoria where he received a BSc in Marine Biology and minored in Environmental Science. He has spent most of his life working on the ocean as a Biologist, Skipper, Environmental Consultant, Adventure Guide, and Expedition Leader.
He currently lives in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island tucked conveniently between the Pacific Ocean and Mt. Washington where he indulges in many of his favorite past times from skiing to mountain biking to fishing and surfing. Christian is also a part-time professional artist, with much of his work depicting the incredible wildlife found in the Polar Regions.
