South African Chris grew up in Johannesburg and would grab every opportunity he could to visit wildlife parks and spend time watching wild animals in their natural environment. This is where his passion to work with animals was ignited. Chris graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2016 and has since completed a Masters in anaesthesiology through which he has had the great opportunity to research anaesthetic protocols and work with one of South Africa’s beautiful wild cats, the serval. Chris is passionate about research and has completed his certificate in diagnostic imaging, he also has interests in medicine and cardiology.
A lover of the outdoors, Chris enjoys wildlife photography and feels at home when lost in the ‘bushveld’ (South African for safari). When not plagued by injuries Chris can be found running, cycling or swimming.
