Antarctica, South Georgia & the Falklands
Southeast Alaska


For over seven years, I worked as an expedition leader, guide, naturalist, and lecturer in incredible places around the world, including the Antarctic and the Arctic.


The polar regions are some of our planet's wildest and most vulnerable wilderness areas. My work facilitated meaningful, lifelong connections between people and these places, as well as a greater understanding of the vulnerability and value of high latitude regions. I hope that continuing to share images and stories from those adventures will help foster a desire to protect our planet.

I share my photos and stories on my Instagram account, The Vagabondist.

My travels have brought me to over 40 countries across 6 continents. I worked on scientific research expeditions through the fjords of Patagonia, sailed to remote communities in the Northwest Passage, guided kayaking trips through the ice of Antarctica, and had close encounters with wild Alaskan brown bears.


My photographs have been printed in several magazines and books, including Seattle Met Magazine, Paddling Magazine, Organic Magazine and Ecothrifty, and used by the Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute, Perpetua Boutique, the University of Michigan, and more.


I am an avid sea kayaker, a Lendal paddle ambassador, and was named one of Adventure Kayak Magazine's top 10 photographers to follow on Instagram in 2016.
