Raised in Saudi Arabia, Karine motorcycled through Vietnam, circumnavigated the globe by ship, taught English in Taiwan, and then there was the time the hyena pups chewed her shoes (while on her feet). On her first trip to Africa, she fell in love with a continent. From one chapter to the next, her adventures uncover her fervor to tell the stories of life through the lens of a camera; her passion became stories of animals, their relationships to humans, and their own world.
For nine years, as the Senior picture editor for National Geographic Kids magazine, Karine used osmosis to suck in all she could about good storytelling and the makings of a "good picture." In 2011 Karine ventured outside the office walls to a life of freelance photography and picture editing.
Karine leads photographic tours across the globe to cool places like the Galapagos and Tanzania. She has worked with children all over the world, using the camera as a tool to teach awareness and conservation. In her spare time, she works with public school systems, trying to get kids with cameras into nature.
