Environment & Conservation

Hi, thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoy looking through.

...These projects wouldn't be possible without some inspirational and innovative teams and companies. If you'd like to be linked-up with anyone/thing you see on here, get in touch.

Generally, I'm an outward-bound creative, producer, overcurious researcher and geography nerd. I focus on environment and sustainability, conservation and adventure, often working on expeditions/projects to document, communicate and conserve wild places.
Along the way, I've also produced editorial and commercial photoshoots and films, as well as creative consulting, TV and location management.

If not on location, you're likely to find me in the sea in Cornwall (UK), or hunting down a green space in London. If you have an idea you'd like to chat through or collaborate on, I'd love to hear from you...
