Had my first film camera at the age of 14. A Fujica Super 8. At the age of 18, I was in the Bahamas shooting documentaries for Scientific Research Projects and Academic endeavors for Scientists of the caliber of Eugenie Clark. Went later to work with the Cousteau Team during the Caribbean Expedition. In addition to a degree in TV and Media, I also obtained a Masters Degree in Animal Behavior, studying with instructors like Dian Fossey and Glenn Haustfatter.
