Conservation biologist, travel zealot, photography enthusiast, book collector, and lover of all things wild and free. Currently balancing life between working for a safari company, writing my thesis on ecotourism and wildlife conservation, and doing a little traveling myself. I have a goofy brown dog, a boyfriend that likes to do voiceovers for cats, and an addiction to audiobooks. All of my days start with coffee, and I regularly have to convince myself that jeans and a white tee-shirt are not acceptable formal ware. I love Africa more than anywhere else I’ve ever been, and would move there in a heartbeat. I ticked off a major life goal of visiting all seven continents when I moved to Australia last year, the final one yet traveled to. I love cliché travel quotes and above all else, David Attenborough. He’s my spirit animal.
