“I came to the field of conservation quite late in life, by way of previous careers in education and design.  After returning to school in my 50’s to complete a master’s in resource management, I began working on various projects in a number of African countries, including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zambia and Mozambique.  I currently work as a consultant with Fauna and Flora International on a project to save the last remaining herd of elephants in the Republic of Guinea.

When not in Africa I divide my time between the UK, where I am originally from, and a remote region of Iceland.”
