An ecologist by training and a naturalist by passion, I am interested in the application of these realms to conservation and communication. I am an avid wildlife photographer and aspiring videographer and use multimedia to promote conservation groups and issues. My heart, soul, and career will probably remain torn between the call of coral reefs and rainforests, but there will always be a special place in my heart for the cold kelp forests of my Californian home. At the Nicholas school I am pursuing a Master’s of Environmental Management in Ecosystem Science and Conservation while conducting research in central Africa and launching a new student organization called Stories for Nature and People (aka “S.N.A.P.”).
