Growing up in Vancouver, I have been surrounded by nature my whole life. As I began taking photos, my favourite subject was, and still is, birds. My life list sits at 251 species, many of which have been seen in the Metro Vancouver area, a testament to the region's natural diversity, located near the internationally important Fraser River delta. I believe that photography is a great tool to inspire action and change in the world. I hope that my photography and writing brings you joy and can foster a better understand of the wonders of nature.
