About

“Wildlife images are one of the most powerful ways we have of engaging people in the natural world” – Sir David Attenborough.

Initially I trained as a zoologist, however later completed a Masters of Environment and then a Masters of Bioethics with one of the greats, Peter Singer. Together, these two qualifications really helped shape my thinking as what type of issues I should be focusing on and why.

After many years in healthcare marketing and then being on the board of Environment Victoria, in addition to conservation and wildlife photography, I now run a science/environmentally focused communication consultancy called The Framing Effect, whose aim is to help people influence more effectively, both with words and with images.

A governor of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Australia, and a member of the Monash Health Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC), you may also occasionally find me during semester teaching  the power of imagery at the University of Melbourne and RMIT, or running small private photography classes and workshops. I also currently have the privilege of chairing the Victorian Alliance for Platypus-Safe Yabby Traps – a collective established to prevent the indiscriminate cruel drowning deaths of platypuses in Victoria that occur via the (often illegal) use of enclosed yabby traps. 

Selected conservation and wildlife photography can also be found on FacebookInstagram and I infrequently post on Twitter, however I am there if interested.

My hope is that the images and information I share will inspire people to stop, think, and treat the world a little more kindly.
