I am very fortunate in my life to have the opportunity to work with some amazing animals. Most of my experience has been working with tigers, and lions at Six Flags in Vallejo, CA, the Oregon Tiger Sanctuary, and Wildlife Companions in Rio Vista, CA. My work with the big cats eventually led me to conservation and eco-tourism in Ethiopia.

My Time With Hyenas In Awash, Ethiopia
I sat on this hillside for a long time, observing young hyenas and their parents emerging from their den. It was a surreal experience as I watched the sun set in the African sky. The hyenas were mysterious, captivating, and it was amazing to see how attentive the mothers were towards their young.
