Alex is a dynamic, inspirational keynote presenter and emcee. She wins her audience’s hearts with warmth, humour and uplifting visual storytelling as she conveys her passion for combining philanthropy with photography to support wildlife conservation and animal rescue. 

Perhaps even more inspiring is her story of how she followed her true calling. After 19 years as a police officer and airport security counter-terrorism inspector, Alex used the power of images to turn her lifetime love of animals into a successful photography career. Her commitment, focus and resilience have made her an admirable leader and award-winning advocate for those ready to be inspired to make a difference, and to literally change themselves and the world.

Through her relatable, authentic manner Alex has enthralled audiences from small groups of school children to packed theatres of professional business adults. Alex can customise presentations and is available to speak for corporations, women’s groups, photography organisations and events, animal rescue functions, school groups, wildlife enthusiasts and adventure lovers.
