Born in New York and settled down in Hong Kong for the past 20 years after living in London and Tokyo. I "found" Londolozi in 2009 and have been a regular visitor since. Over that time I have gained a passion for the bush and the photographic opportunities it provides. Thanks to the tutelage of the Londolozi rangers and Creative hub I am getting my photography to an acceptable level.
