Adventures with Aria
Adventures with Aria is a partnership founded in 2018 by Angela Hains (Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fantastic Beasts: A Natural History, Prehistoric Planet) and Adam White (Big Blue Live, SpringWatch, David Attenborough’s Life in Cold Blood) to offer a variety of services to the wildlife storytelling community.
We are passionate wildlife adventurers, dedicated to using our skills and experience to make a positive impact on our planet. With our unique combination of location/production management skills and field producing/directing experience, we can be your production team on location.
We are mobile! We are currently based in Arizona, but we go where the story takes us. Let’s connect to discuss how we could meet your project needs.

Angela Hains trained as an environmental and broadcast journalist, and has over 16 years of experience in conservation communication, coordinating with some of the biggest names in broadcast world (Good Morning America, The Today Show, CNN’s Anderson Cooper).
Before creating Adventures with Aria, Angela ran the media relations division at Monterey Bay Aquarium, responsible for coordinating with major outlets, getting important topics into popular media (albatrosses and plastic pollution on The Ellen DeGeneres Show) and helping to create real impact change (formation of a state tax contribution towards the threatened southern sea otter population, expansion of Seafood Watch internationally and its adoption by global food suppliers).
She has worked closely with numerous on-screen talent (Jay Leno, Stephen Fry, Shailene Woodley) and many large productions (Big Blue Live, Finding Dory, Big Little Lies).
An optimist at her core, Angela believes in the importance of sharing hope-filled stories to stoke conservation of wild places and wildlife.
Adam White is a BAFTA winning wildlife filmmaker with over 25 years experience across the globe. Before moving to the United States and creating Adventures with Aria, Adam worked at the BBC Natural History Unit, series producing major live TV events (Big Blue Live, Wild Alaska Live, SpringWatch) and helped oversee development, securing a record business slate.
He has produced shows across a huge range of wildlife genres from multi-million dollar landmarks to fast turnaround children’s shows. He has worked with numerous presenters (Sir David Attenborough, Chris Packham, Steve Backshall) and many of the major television channels (PBS, NatGeo, Discovery).
At his heart however, Adam is an animal lover, who still gets as excited as a little kid when he finds a cool creature out in nature.
