Private Guide & Helicopter Pilot

After finishing school, I left the city for a life in the wild, starting as a field guide in the Eastern cape. This was the first of many different wilderness areas that I got to know very well over the next decade. In 2013, I realised a childhood dream and learnt to fly helicopters, and have since been involved with game capture, wildlife veterinary work and scenic flights. My time spent in the bush developed a fascination with being surrounded by nature and a passion to keep wild places wild. I want to make an impact in conservation, while furthering my footsteps around our World’s wild places. There are amazing people and cultures to discover and so much to look after.
