How do you describe yourself with a single word? Am I a wildlife biologist, a photographer, a filmmaker, or an educator? Can I be all of these things?
- As a wildlife biologist I have conducted wildlife research around the world, gaining an intimate knowledge of the natural world and its inhabitants. I have studied owls in Texas, tropical reforestation in Australia, wildlife management in Kenya, and seal maternal care in South Africa.
- As a wildlife photographer I have traveled the globe capturing the beauty and biology of the natural world. From Alaska to Antarctica, I have experienced and photographed some of our planet’s greatest wonders.
- As a filmmaker I document my experiences and knowledge and share it with others, with the hope of inspiring a passion and appreciation for nature.
- As an educator I have spent almost 20-years working with students. From traditional high school and university classes to photo tours on the African savanna, I have shared my knowledge of animal behavior and my passion for digital media with thousands of students.
Even these four terms don’t describe me completely. I am also a father, husband, son, brother, writer, online course developer, adventure guide, triathlete, martial artist, neophyte Spanish speaker, juggler, and lifelong learner.
In the end, I am a storyteller who uses a combination of photography, filmmaking, and a unique collection of life experiences to tell stories about the natural world.
