About me

My passion is to go in search of the edge of life…

 

What do I mean? Good question. It probably means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to find a tall cliff and hang over the edge, though given the chance I do quite enjoy that! For me it describes those moments; a view, a person, an encounter that makes me feel completely alive. Absolutely on edge! Moments without boundaries.

 

I hope to show you a world that is sometimes stunning and sometimes less so, not every picture is meant to be beautiful, that is not the world we live in. Some images might provoke, some might inspire and some elicit sympathy or a smile but all will hopefully be a true reflection of the real world that is out there. A world waiting to be explored, experienced and lived!

 

I grew up in Africa, have travelled across the globe summiting freezing mountains, exploring humid forests, running out of fuel in scorching deserts and have now returned to the Africa – the continent I call home. My travels have been incredible, the people I met amazing and the memories unforgettable. There are no regrets. Only a burning desire to experience more.

Educated as a Conservation Biologist – I now work for Space for Giants as their Regional Coordinator. I’m passionate about the world’s last remaining wild places and the species and communities that depend on them. We owe it to our humanity to do all that is in our power to protect what we have left. I intend to do just that – and I ask you to join me on that journey!
