I'm a zoologist, author and presenter/on-screen expert. I've been fascinated by animals for as long as I can remember, an interest that led to a prize-winning, first class degree in zoology at the University of Wales, Bangor and a PhD in insect ecology at the University of Leeds. I'm currently a visiting research fellow at the University of Leeds and a visiting fellow at the University of Essex. As well as observing and studying the animals I can find here in the UK I've travelled widely in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Southeast Asia, ever searching for interesting and elusive beasts.
I'm enthusiastic to share my fascination for the incredible living things that surround us with anyone who will listen. I have recently returned from an expedition to Burma with the BBC Natural History Unit as a presenter, the product of which will be broadcast as a three part series on BBC 2 sometime towards the end of 2013. Other television projects include a BBC Children's Natural History Unit series that I've already done some filming for.
