I've had an interest in the natural world for as long as I can remember. Starting with dinosaurs (the Australian Museum was my favourite place), and moving on to the animals we share earth with now. My main focus has always been on reptiles, amphibians and birds.

For the last 15 years I have been working in zoological institutions in NSW and the NT where my passion has been inspiring visitors to take a more positive view of our wonderful frogs and reptiles.

I recently moved from Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, to the Blue Mountains. I'm currently working as a senior herpetofauna keeper in addition to joining the amazing herpetology team at the Australian Museum.
