Currently based in New Jersey, Emma "Em" Lock, was born in the UK to her Spanish mother and Chinese father. Em's formative years were spent on the fascinating island of Hong Kong, and it was here that she nurtured her passion for exotic wildlife, catching and bringing home snakes, turtles and various insects. At the tender age of 10 years old, she managed a pet shop after school, and spent weekends in the local veterinary office, learning about different medical procedures. Having a strong affinity for the dogs whose operations she observed, she was given a job at the Hong Kong (R)SPCA, where she trained surrendered and feral dogs in preparation for re-homing. She specialized in training difficult, fearful and aggressive dogs. She found her true calling when she began working as an animal educator, taking animals into schools, universities, museums and even prisons to give educational presentations, thus combining her passion for animals with her training as a performer. An avid lover of travel and wildlife exploration, Em has filmed her adventures in countries such as China, Thailand, the Arctic and Africa. After creating a digital series based on her daily work, Em found and nurtured a community of animal lovers who resonate with her positive vibe and willingness to share her experiences and knowledge. Alongside her YouTube channel, Em continues to give live animal presentations and has a dream to open the world's first ever animal arts center.
