I am an Incidental Naturalist.
My passion is for the nature that thrives around us; spending time in wild places brings me joy and fills me with energy for life.
I also have an insatiable appetite for travel. When these two passions collide, bucket-list experiences of the natural world are possible. In sharing these adventures, I hope that you will find your own inspiration to connect with nature.
Great wildlife encounters occur through careful intent, but we sometimes overlook opportunities incidental to daily life. You never know what you will see on a holiday, in the garden or even on the daily commute to work.
My wildlife encounters are achieved on a budget, while holding down a regular job and being part of a family. My job involves occasional travel which provides some incidental nature experiences. I’m far from a professional naturalist and rarely have the time to capture the golden hue of the early morning sunlight in my photography.
When I’m not peering through a lens, or sitting confronted by a blank Word document, I am enjoying family time, great food and new cultural encounters.
