Weekend birding trips with my dad sealed my fate and after school I went on to study nature conservation. This journey has richly blessed my life with wonderful experiences, having worked with various species and seen many beautiful places. Nature is our greatest teacher and I look forward to continuing to learn from her.

It has long been a dream and I consider it an immense privilege to contribute to the conservation work of such an amazing bird such as the "Endangered Southern Ground-hornbill".  Every day is a challenge and there is a lot to be learnt.
