kingdom of the wild aerial exploration of wildlife in namibia

I knew that my film wasn’t going to save the world, but I might be able to play a small role in encouraging and supporting conservation efforts.” As a filmmaker, it’s not often that you have the opportunity to give back through your art.

antigua the jewel of the caribbean

This wasn’t my first time in Antigua and it will unlikely be the last. I was asked to attend a ‘mini-conference’ organized by the Antigua Tourist Board to market their countries with photographers, YouTubers and bloggers–sharing all the beauty and quirks to their followers.

Tourists have been flocking here for years and there are dozens of high-end, stylish resorts. Luckily, Antigua still proudly holds onto its roots. There are towns full of candy coloured homes…
