I am bi and I am a wildlife educator, animal trainer, and artist.//
I floated through college, studying Biology and Social Psychology, not knowing what I wanted to do. In an interview where I uttered the phrase “elephant diaper” the managers of the local zoo’s education department saw something in me that I didn’t know was there. As someone who was impacted by David Attenborough I never expected I could be doing the same for kids of color (and all kids in general) on the ground. But here I am: educator, trainer, scientist; and mentor to several queer, teens of color.
