I am interested in telling the story of bears because of their delicate conservation status and their powerful cultural significance. Bears elicit an excitement and intrigue for everyone: from the young urban dweller to the seasoned outdoorsmen. They are the perfect species to foster compelling conversations about the importance of maintaining wild places or wildlife. By capturing and sharing powerful imagery of these animals in their natural habitats, I hope to showcase the importance of bears to ecosystems and communities. Through documenting and sharing expeditions via short films, social media, and community engagements I hope to inspire new minds to outdoor adventure and the conservation movement.
