Thanks for visiting my site! As you will see, my professional training and interests are diverse. I am a scientist, a conservationist, and an educator. I am an award-winning nature photographer, a filmmaker, an electronic music dj, and a global citizen.


Currently, I am wrapping up a doctoral degree at the University of Colorado at Boulder, under the guidance of Dr. Kendi Davies. My research explores the curious and often surprising responses of wildlife to forest loss and fragmentation, to better understand biodiversity conservation in a rapidly changing world.


Although my heart lies in science, much of my time is spent in creative outlets, including photography, film, and electronic music production. My full media portfolio is available upon request, with a subset presented on this site.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?'

Actually, who are you not to be?
