It all began when I truly grasped the prevalence of exploited animals in tourism and the rapid rate at which our planet’s magnificent creatures are declining. Nothing makes me happier than to watch a dolphin surf with its pod or an elephant run wild with its herd. I hoped to create something that would spark compassion and awareness in people of all ages so that we could work together to help those suffering. Through my work, I invite you to see the world from the eyes of an animal; by doing this, I believe we can make this world a better place for all living beings.
