Wildlife Photographer

I am passionate about what I do, enthusiastic in the manner in which I present it and in possession of an unquenchable thirst to explore our natural world.

I’ve been working within the travel & tourism industry for well over a decade. I spent 7 years working for the best safari lodge company in Africa – Singita Game Reserves. I have made appearances on award-winning TV shows such as The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show & also The Martha Stewart Show. My photography & travel experiences have featured in several international magazines, including National Geographic.

I addition to being a director at Wild Eye I am also an expedition & tour leader. I manage our great guiding team and assist in safari & tour development to many incredible destinations around the world. Through diverse safaris that I lead I get to expose guests to nature in a special way. Although photography is a key focus it’s by no means a requirement. Photography is an effective way for my guests to capture the beauty of nature they encounter on their travels with me.

Thanks to a deep love for nature and photography instilled by my dad at a young age, I grew up with the constant desire to be as close as possible to wildlife. I followed through with my childhood ambitions and worked within the professional guiding industry for nine years as a lodge-based ranger, and at times as a travel photographer. This experience exposed me to hosting influential guests at the highest level.

Through my strong social media following I am able to share my travel experiences with people from around the world. These travels have taken me throughout 8 different African countries as well international destinations such as Brazil and India. In the coming months I’ll also visit regions of the Himalayas in search of snow leopards and Patagonia trekking pumas (mountain lions) on foot.

My intention has never been solely for recognition but for the plight of what’s left of our natural recourses. Using my love and understanding of wildlife and my skill as a photographer I am able to convey to the viewer more than an image or a fleeting moment – I bring that moment alive, telling a beautiful story and hopefully in the process I’ll affect the lives of those who follow my journey.
