As an individual I always loved and care for the natural world. The little I know about how things have worked really made me learn a lot in my adult years so far. Certainly that with the human activity and our biggest threat yet that climate change there's a lot to be done. But what an individual can do when there's an overwhelming task ahead?
Let me just start with this... all of my friends knows that I'm a big Star Trek fan. I've been almost all my life and in fact when it comes to my friends and my old schoolmates they always associated me wit the series. I have numerous encounters with people whom I come across with in my life and 9 out of 10 times they always added into their first sentence that "hey, I've seen Star Trek was on a couple of weeks ago and I though of you!" and that was always something I was really proud of. It was nothing like a pat in the back, but they placing me in their mind in to the same shelf as they place Star Trek I'm truly honoured.
If I would have told you that I wanted to become a geography and art teacher prior getting into graphic design you might have told me that "that is probably a really great way to build up a career that will suit you the most." I imagined myself becoming a teacher, teaching students about the natural world, space and just opening their eyes up to see the greater picture about our World... Well, this path quickly faded away when I happened to hold a camera in my hand. No, not a DSLR, not at all... afterall it was about 15+ years ago. It was one of those big, chunky cameras that you've had to insert a VHS tape and record everything looking through a lens and carrying the equipment on your shoulder.... yeah, I'm old and I know. :)
