I am a conservation scientist, sustainable tourism expert, and skilled travel and nature photographer. Having traveled to over 30 countries, as well as worked and studied abroad, I bring a global perspective to my work. I have significant experience in international development, having spent half a year living in rural villages in Northeast Thailand engaging with local communities about the various development issues affecting the region, including dams and mining, the overuse of pesticides and fertilizers, and land rights violations.

I continue to travel to pursue my interests in bird and wildlife watching, SCUBA diving, and of course tasting (and cooking) all the local specialties. With my camera always in tow, I use my visual storytelling skills to document the planet’s beautiful biodiversity, as well as to share experiences from my journeys – from the search for elusive bird species in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia to the construction of cob ovens in a remote village in the Solomon Islands. I have served as a National Geographic Student Expeditions Leader, and have shot assignments for National Geographic Expeditions in Borneo, Brazil, Greece, China, Vietnam, and Baja California Sur.

I recently graduated from the Yale School of the Environment, where I earned a master of environmental management degree and developed a thesis examining how local ecological knowledge could inform conservation efforts for Sunda pangolins in Thailand. In September 2024, I will begin my doctoral studies, pursuing a PhD in Interdisciplinary Ecology at the University of Florida.
