I’m an educated man with a passion for nature and marine biology. I am a good storyteller and I love to communicate and teach about environmental issues through different mediums, and I have a big thirst for knowledge. I’m a freelance field scientist, nature tour guide, and science communicator. I have very good writing skills, competent photographer, excellent swimmer and an Advanced Scuba diver.
I have a degree in Environmental Sciences from the Autonomous University of Baja California and a MSc in Marine Environmental Management from the University of York. I’ve taken photography courses, including Wildeye’s Wildlife Camera Operator Course (2014) and a diploma in Cinematography (2017).
I have participated in different wildlife monitoring programmes and I have worked as a field scientist, whale-watching and nature tour guide, teacher and science communicator. My experience in the wildlife filmmaking includes a work experience week with films@59 in 2015; a part-time job as fixer/assistant researcher for the BBC’s Mexico’ series (episode “The burning north” 2015); web video-documentaries for NGOs and whale watching companies in Mexico; delegate at WIldscreen’s film festival in 2016; and creating non-profit shorts on marine biology and conservation for my youtube channel: Poseidon&Kamohoalii:
Looking to meet fellow colleagues, and to engage in wildlife documentary productions. If you need an assistant researcher, fixer, presenter, contact me.
