I am an 18 year old student from Long Island, New York with a passion for wildlife and conservation photography. About four years ago, I discovered my love for animals and photography while on a holiday in the Galapagos islands.That was the first time I had ever picked up a camera, igniting a fire me.
The next year saw my first visit to Africa, a place that would change my life. After catching the "Africa Bug," I now focus primarily on wildlife and conservation photography in sub-Saharan Africa. I have been fortunate enough to travel through the continent from the Serengeti plains to the Okavango Delta.
For the past three years, I have been teamed up with rhino and big cat organizations to help save some of Africa’s most endangered species. Last year I interned at the Great Plains Foundation in Botswana, where we worked closely to educate local children about the animals around them.
Outside of photography, I am currently entering my freshman year at Stanford University, where I hope to further this passion.
