About me

I fell in love with travel as a child - first on camping weekends and road trips - then eventually far away destinations by air. I didn't leave North America for the first time until I was 20, but since then have visited more than 35 countries, including 12 in Africa. I fell in love with the African continent the moment I set foot on the soil, and after three visits, I changed my life to allow my career to focus on Africa - writing, photography, travel consulting and conservation.
