As an explorer and conservation biologist, I have enjoyed working and interacting with wildlife and wild people, as well as immersing myself into wild places around the globe. My insights into conservation are developed from over a decade and a half of first-hand knowledge that I have gathered while on the ground in remote locations such as the Amazon Basin, Namibia, Botswana, Costa Rica, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Borneo, Sumatra and many more.
I have a passion for sharing these experiences with audiences and have spoken to fellow biologists, zoological institutes, conservation NGOs, universities and secondary schools. Besides my adventures in the wild as a field biologist, I am also able to utilize my experience as a zoo curator whenever I give a talk. My infective passion and jovial style make these presentations both enlightening and entertaining, and are powerful catalysts for student audiences. My stories will both enthrall and teach you at the same time.
