I’m a British Naturalist and Environmentalist

 who is passionate about

Responsible Ecotourism.

My mission is to inspire people to

choose wildlife destinations for their vacations.

Then maybe other eco-warriors will awaken and unite to

live more consciously on our planet.

Having always been bewitched by wildlife, I studied ecology and zoology at Imperial College London where I was fascinated by the theories but yearned to see these exotic creatures in their environment. My first wildlife expedition was to study bats in Honduras.

I slept in a hammock and waved goodbye to all the ‘necessities’ that I’d become accustomed to living in London. I learnt to live a very simple life in that cloud forest. It was here that I experienced my first moment of pure awe – sitting on a smooth rock in the centre of a clear stream with the midnight forest singing around me. Fireflies and bats were dancing over my head and the sheer happiness that I felt moved me to tears. That moment changed my life forever and I became fiercely protective of that forest. I became an ecoadventurer.

My life since university has seen me working in wildlife filmmaking and sustainability communication. Throughout this journey, I have kept the sense of purpose that overcame me in Central America. At every opportunity, I have travelled to a new corner of this planet to see the wildlife and how the people interact with the environment around them.
I’ve been lucky enough to visit places so beautiful that no photograph can truly capture them, and along the way, I’ve tried to encourage my family and friends to join me.

It was these travels, through work and pleasure, that inspired my mission to write about and photograph the top wildlife hotspots on the planet.
I hope that by doing this, other awe-seekers and ecoadventurers will awaken and unite to live more consciously with our planet.

The hard earned cash that you spend on your wildlife holiday makes those animals worth more alive than dead. At its best, ecotourism provides employment for local people and puts a real value on areas of outstanding natural beauty.

I’d love for you to follow my journey. I’m open to advice, recommendations, tips and travelling companions.
