Having worked as a wildlife educator for the past 11 years, I have taught to more than 75,000 people young and old. Being able to express my true passion for wildlife has made me one of the top entertainers within my specialized field. While presenting to live audiences, I have to be quick on my feet, and able to adapt to the many unpredictable circumstance that can arise while working with live animals. The value of this experience cannot be substituted, and has provided me with the skill set to deliver superior performances as a wildlife entertainer and host.
