SONY DSCHaving grown up on South Wales coastline, I’ve always loved exploring the different wildlife found in the area, having more access to areas means I can travel around in search of interesting wildlife and the ‘oddballs’ of our world.

Another huge interest of mine is that of hybridisation in wildfowl, it’s something that has fascinated me since beginning to work in Aviculture how certain species will consider breeding with another species and how birds have been manipulated to produce “the best”. I love studying the behaviour of birds and changes over the year.

I love birds! I’ve been interested in birds since I was a toddler and the passion and drive to conserve species has grown. I conduct surveys for NGOs on birds, monitor species; geese in particular and travel the world in search of new and exciting species aswell as fundraising and education for threatened species.

On Screen & Radio

I love sharing my passion for wildlife and am a usual interviewee nature-nerd on TV News programmes and recently featured in a TV series for S4C about Urban Wildlife. Also, frequently talking about nature on BBC Radio Cymru. I do a lot of writing for organisations and companies mainly online articles but have been featured in print too. I also have my own Youtube channel where I aim to inspire children and adults to get exploring the wildlife in our world.

Fitness & Adventure

Aside from my love for wildlife and travel, I have a big passion for

adventure and fitness.  I started Kickboxing at the age of 8 and worked my way up to Black Belt and have fought for both Team WCKA and Team Wales. I now spend the majority of my time either in the gym, out running to exploring South Wales and the UK by any means possible! I’ve fallen back in love with my bike and now try to bike it as much as possible, I have done talks and written articles about keeping fit and our relationship with the outdoors and wildlife, and how to keep yourself motivated and enthusiastic about fitness!
