As a conservationist, I have always been passionate about the natural world and wildlife, particularly cats. With an B.Sc. in Environmental Science and an M.Sc. in Conservation and Rural Development, and several years spent working and living in the field, studying cheetahs, African leopards and snow leopards, I've decided to combine my favorite things in life; art, photography and wildlife. I've been incredibly lucky to travel the world following my passion, and to see the animals I love most in their natural environments. I hope to share these experiences with others, and inspire people to take action, to protect these species in peril.
I would like to continue to develop my career towards conserving big cats in an increasingly human-dominated landscape, ideally interfacing between science, policy and community, inspiring action through multiple mediums including photography, writing and art.
The goal of this website is to raise awareness around the pressing wildlife issues of our time and the fantastic work that conservation organizations are doing in the field. Art, photography and storytelling are powerful tools to reach many and inspire action to save the wildlife we all love.
I'm using this platform to highlight the work of several organizations that I believe are making strides in various aspects of the field of conservation, as well as to showcase my own efforts towards this cause. I believe collectively, we can create the change needed to conserve our incredible wildlife.
