I am a naturalist with a thirst for adventure and a slight tendency for accidents. Luckily, I also hold a Wilderness First Responder qualification now, so am able to patch myself up in the field fairly well too! My degree in Animal Behaviour set me up as a wildlife nomad and also introduced me to heaps of environmental issues that I believe wholeheartedly everyone needs to know about.
Since 2012, I’ve worked with wildlife in many countries from the Bahamas to South Africa, in a range of random roles, from assessing shark populations to tracking grizzly bears. My experience within the natural world, amongst some of the planet’s most iconic ecosystems from rainforests to coral reefs, has given me a huge kick up the backside to do all I can to protect it.
Aside from the great outdoors, my big passion is storytelling. I’m a huge believer that a lot of science is missed simply because people can’t understand the complex jargon or see how it would apply to their everyday life. So, through sheer stubbornness, I’ve sidestepped the 9-5 to pursue a career as an Eco-Journalist and Children’s Author to bridge this gap.
