With a background as an Environmental Scientist and a Masters in Natural Resource Management, I now work at the intersection of what I enjoy most: Research, Science and Conservation, Photography and Film.
I didn’t set out to become a filmmaker, or photographer in fact. But in hindsight that’s what makes the most sense to me. While dabbling with my camera on the side, and working on a development project in East Timor I shot a photo of an old man I couldn’t get out of my mind: you could see his life in his face, and I’d immortalised it. I have since gained an understanding of the power of storytelling through my lens.
My work has taken me to Nepal with the Australian Himalayan Foundation, Namibia for a short called the Penguin Runner, a follow up called West to the Sea shot in Canada and Montana with the American Prairie reserve as part of a larger research program where I shot Landmark. I also researched and shot a series of case studies/stories in South Africa, Sri Lanka and Kenya for Seed.uno. My work’s been featured in Sage Magazine, Do it Now Magazine and I have written content for Sidetracked magazine, Trail Run magazine and National Geographic Voices blog as part of an ongoing series by National geographic emerging explorers.
