Meet Chris

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.
