- Volunteer Traveler: Bolivia
- Volunteer Traveler: Costa Rica
Hello! I am a documentary film-maker and photographer who has traveled as a volunteer to help promote non-profit organizations. Along the way I've also visited amazing places and eco-tourism lodges and have had some lucky encounters with animals (and some not so lucky). By volunteering I have gotten to work with the Galápagos National Park, PeruVerde, Sustainable Bolivia, Energetica, Mosoj Yan, and National Geographic. I'm trying to help these organizations attract more attention and donations to their website, so thanks for watching and please help me spread the word about these organizations that are working to stop deforestation, preserve delicate ecosystems, research sustainable means for energy development, and rescue children from the perils of life on the street.
I grew up in Oregon and have always loved the outdoors and saying hello.
