I'm a photographer and ecologist with a passion for wildlife conservation and communicating nature. I believe that art -- whether it's film, photography, writing, or something else -- has the power to persuade and motivate. That makes it crucial for protecting our wild places.
I'm a National Geographic Explorer and Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellow in Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique, and I'm represented by Nature Picture Library. I have a PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University, which I completed with the help of a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Before that, I earned a BSc in Conservation and Resource Studies with an emphasis in Communicating Conservation in a Developing World from the College of Natural Resources at the University of California, Berkeley. I've traveled on three continents, including ten years traveling and working on wildlife and conservation projects in Africa.
My photos have been published in BBC Wildlife Magazine, bioGraphic Magazine, Ranger Rick, Biosphere, and others, and have been honored in various photo competitions including Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Nature's Best. See my "Awards & Press" page for more details!
