Rural livelihoods, food security, informal sector economies, and community tourism in remote regions needing protection and tourism funding
Southern Africa and developing countries
I am a social scientist and photographer from South Africa and have spent the past 23 years working as a social and environmental scientist, mainly within rural communities dealing with livelihood development, food security and environmental issues. Apart from practical implementation and training, I have become increasingly involved in monitoring and evaluation over the past number of years. I have worked on projects in over 7 Southern and Central African countries and travelled to over 30 worldwide. I have now started to explore ways to use my passion for photography and travel, combined with my social science background to highlight social issues and capture stories of change and impact.
