As a field ecologist, I work mostly with marine predators in places like Antarctica, Hawaii and the North Pacific. I am currently working on a project focused on the foraging ecology of the Weddell seal in the Ross Sea, Antarctica. I also work for Lindblad/National Geographic Expeditions, roles which have taken me to some of the most photographic and remote places on the planet.When I’m not in the field, I’m in the San Juan Islands with my three-year-old little girl, who I desperately hope grows up to love the ocean as much as her mum.
