I have had a long interest in the diversity of Australia’s reptiles and amphibians, especially of geckos. Following this interest I have volunteered with conservation and research projects across Australia to gain knowledge in the diversity of Australia’s reptiles and amphibians. This has linked with my passion for photography which I use to document the animals I find in nature.

In the role of Herpetological Technical Officer I assist in maintaining the museums large collection of herpetological specimens and in making these accessible for research, as well as providing knowledge in identification of reptiles and amphibians.
