I'm a photographer by trade, but a conservationist at heart. Through the years, I've had the opportunity to work for multiple conservation groups within Africa as a videographer, photographer, and marketing intern. I've tracked lions through remote parts of Africa, trekked to the basecamp of Everest, swam with Whale Sharks in the Indian Ocean, and collared Hyenas in Zimbabwe. These experiences alone have taught me the beauty of nature first hand and how photography moves you to understand it. That is why I am driven not only to share my images but to bring along others for the ride, so that they can be apart of a movement to preserve and protect our world
