I now work at the International Institute for Environment and Development but have previously been both a science journalist (SciDev.Net), rainforest biologist (PhD research in Borneo and Papua New Guinea) and book illustrator (Extraordinary Animals by Ross Piper). I am most interested in finding ways to communicate about biodiversity in ways that people can really relate to.
