About Me

Wildlife Manager & Expert

For the last 17 years, I have been working in the zoological and wildlife field as a zookeeper, marine mammal specialist and wildlife manager.

During my career, I was involved in projects that focused on educating the public on the importance of terrestrial and aquatic wildlife conservation in The Middle-East, Africa and Asia

Out of all my work I enjoyed working with aquatic wildlife the most. Protecting whales, dolphins, seals and manatees have always been on the top of my list.

During my stay in Norway in 2017, I did a road trip from Oslo up towards the North Cape. During this travel I did as much hiking and wildlife spotting as possible and was fascinated by the beauty of Norwegian fjords and landscapes.

It was time to combine my new found Norwegian love with my old passion for wildlife conservation.
