Marine scientist in South Australia for 30 years, marine educator for past 10 of those years. I also work in primary-level special education. Previously worked for fisheries and environment departments in SA.

Established sole trader consultancy in 2004, doing contracts for State and national government agencies, universities and NGOs.

Experience in fish population dynamics and mathematical modelling; fish biology (e.g. fish ageing techniques); marine environmental impact work; marine reserve design; marine GIS mapping / spatial database, numerical ecology and multivariate statistics; biogeography of macroalgae; spatial surveys of common fishes; surveys of rare fishes and invertebrates; introduced marine species, and marine citizen science project management.

I founded and manage the marine citizen science group South Australian Conservation Research Divers (SACReD), which has been active in SA for 13 years so far. SACReD undertakes periodic field work, to document the distributions and habitats of uncommonly known species; to discover previously unrecorded species, and to record introduced species in subtidal habitats.

For the past 5 years so far, I have also managed the Neville Coleman Memorial Nudibranch Dive Event, a community-based marine photography and citizen science event that occurs each summer in South Australia.
