I strive to save our wild world through travel, specifically conservation travel, which adds value to natural areas and supports local communities. Combine travel and photography, and you've got a story. These photos help tell a part of each story and represent some of my experiences, travels, and work. But the real tipping point for conservation is when these images and stories inspire you to join me in protecting the amazing corners of our planet. Explore this website, read a blog or two, and contact me if you feel inspired.
