Stories from the
For as long as I can remember, I've been enchanted by animals. I have spent the last 7 years traveling to wildlife-rich areas of the world with my camera in hand and heart on my sleeve. I've learned about different species and about the lives of individual animals.
I've cried tears of joy, tears of laughter, and tears of sorrow as I watched the lives and deaths of the animals play out in front of me.
Every day I learn more about the plight of animals as well as about their victories. I am on a mission to share what I learn with others so that together we can preserve the wild world for generations to come.
The month in East Africa was amazing!
This next quarter, I'll be photographing underwater in the Sea of Cortez. The goal is to snorkel with whale sharks, rays, sea lions, and potentially orcas and whatever other creatures we can find that doesn't mind human swimmers. I'm actually a bit nervous about this trip for multiple reasons. 1. I get really motion sickness and to combat the motion sickness, I take medication which makes me very tired and a bit loopy. 2. Even though I've been working out and eating super healthy since January (as well as doing my best while traveling), I'm not in the physical condition I was hoping to be in for this trip. 3. I haven't photographed underwater much. I'm planning on upgrading my GoPro as well as bringing my underwater housing I have for a Sony point and shoot camera which was recommended to me a few years ago that I've never used due to covid.
I'll be spending a few weeks on a cruise with my mom and sister but since it's not wildlife focused, I don't have it listed on the map.
Then, I'm headed back to Botswana. This will be my third trip there (although the second one was just on the Chobe River for a few days). This trip was a Covid postponement so I'm happy to finally be able to go. My last trip was about 30 years ago and I'm very excited to check it out for myself again.
