About Me

Naturalist. Researcher. Filmmaker. Visual Storyteller. 

I have over 9 years experience as a biologist and naturalist, giving me an in-depth understanding of the Canadian wilderness. 

I have worked with high production film crews on blue chip natural history productions for series broadcasted on BBC (UK), CBC (Canada), TVO (Canada), Smithsonian (US), Terra Mater (UK), Apple TV.

 

You can find me filming stories on Canada's iconic mammals, but I am recognized for my work with reptiles and amphibians, being a specialist in this taxa. My region of expertise is from the shores of Georgian Bay to the hills of Algonquin Park and into Canada's far north.

As the great Steve Irwin once said, "education is all about being excited about something".  I want to be able to pass on my passion to others and video is a way to do that. Growing up with a deep love for wildlife,  I've been studying the natural world all my life. It wasn't until I immersed myself in photography and cinematography, however, that I was able to truly share this passion.
 
I am a biologist and conservationist at heart, so every time I film and share a moose feeding, a rattlesnake coiled and rattling, or tell the story of how to protect our freshwater turtles, it fills me with absolute joy. Using film as my media, I aim to share my passion with the planet, by showing the stories and unearthing the mysteries of the great, wild world.
