Update: I’m in grad school! So no California for me right now 😦 But yay I’m in grad school! My photos, at least for the summer, will be of the beautiful central Michigan area. I’m studying – and this might shock you – snakes. 🙂 Let’s do this!
I am Monica Noel Matthews, recent graduate of UC Santa Cruz and current student in a Wildlife Corridor program. Animals and the landscapes that surround them are my passion and I hope to forge a career combining my passion for creatures around the world with my passion for journalism and photography, starting with this blog.
In addition to wildlife and nature photography, I enjoy hiking, camping, backpacking, rock climbing, kayaking, trail running, lifting and working out in the gym and playing various sports, including rugby and soccer. If you’re in the Bay Area in Northern California and are interested in rock climbing, hiking or birding, hit me up!
Friend request me on Facebook!
Or, follow me on Twitter, Instagram, 500px or Flickr!

Also, please enjoy my ever growing collection of pictures of me holding snakes. The species include Gopher snake, Aquatic garter snake, Mexican vine snake and Northern cat-eyed snake.
