After finishing a degree in business management, I could not help but chase my passion and desire to be outdoors. After spending the past few years in the bush as a conservation guide and camp manager, my life has changed through my experiences with nature and wildlife.

The idea of exploring remote and untouched areas along with guests who are hungry to learn, truly excites me. I strive to share my passion with guests and expose them to a level of appreciation for the big moments, small moments and everything in between.

After finishing a degree in business management, I could not help but chase my passion and desire to be outdoors. After spending the past few years in the bush as a conservation guide and camp manager, my life has changed through my experiences with nature and wildlife.

I grew up spending plenty of time with my father in the bush and I constantly developed curiosity to see more, experience more and feel more. This curiosity pushes me to the point that I make the most of every opportunity that comes my way. I have been privileged enough to have been involved in many hands on conservation activities while working at Marataba Conservation Camps and this exposed me to a different type of wildlife experience and a deeper level of understanding of nature.
