Born and raised in the beautiful state of Florida, I love to live my life with animals in the great outdoors. I work closely with alligators, crocodiles, venomous snakes, a Florida panther, and many other creatures, big and small. I love traveling and exploring new environments and try to make it a point to travel as much as possible. I have a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies from Florida International University and have several publications in invasive species biology and am participating in ongoing projects in this field. I have also worked extensively in television to promote wildlife awareness and understanding of predators on networks such as Discover, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, E!, and many more.

Photography has always been a passion, especially underwater photography of predators such as gators, sharks, and snakes. Swimming out in the glades to photograph gators is a tricky endeavor but one I love and enjoying sharing the images and stories to change how people think about these misunderstood creatures and places.
