Photography has been a keen interest since childhood but bird photography didn’t really figure prominently until I got my first DSLR in 2013.  My knowledge of birds has grown rapidly since and I enjoy greatly getting out and seeing birds and learning about them but I consider myself a photographer first.  More generally, I’ve had a life-long passion for nature and the natural world.  This also led to involvement in environmental activism during my university years in the 1970s and early 80s in Queensland, a tough time for the environment and conservation in that state.

I was born and raised in Brisbane but have lived in Canberra since, reaching here via the USA and Adelaide.  While I have a PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology, I gave away the idea of a research career when I moved to Canberra in 1885 to join the Australian Public Service where I worked in a variety of jobs until retiring in 2013.

I am also currently a member of the board of PhotoAccess which promotes photographic-based art in the ACT and is one of the ACT government's designated key arts organisations.
