Amongst my esteemed colleagues I include 140 penguins, a handful of dolphins and a couple of lemurs, not to mention 5,324 termites.
I have worked in academia, zoos, international biodiversity and conservation policy and, more recently broadcasting and wildlife filmmaking.
After a freak winter sports accident I am now a permanent wheelchair user. I thought this would end my career as conservation biologist - little did I know it was only just the beginning.
Since my recovery, I want to squeeze the most out of life, and continue working in wildlife media. The journey is just beginning, so come and join me!
