Following a career in film and television that included commercials to natural history filmmaking and involvement with the United Nations Forum on Forests Secretariat, Leslie focused on lifelong passions that would take her around the world. Writing, film, horses and falconry.
Her work as an international advisor and strategist for equine, media and cultural arts development took her to the United Arab Emirates to work with horses and business development for a remarkable and dear family. During this time she discovered a stirring respect and love for an extraordinary people, and a fascination with their amazing heritage steeped in a timeless connection to the land.
Returning to the West, Leslie has continued her work in equine business development and expanded a writing career based around the idea of writing with cinematic sensibility.
In addition to her love of story, Leslie is an avid falconer and breeder and trainer of Pura Raza Española (Andalusian) and Friesian horses, and a busy internet marketing entrepreneur specializing in international SEO.
