Having grown up on South Wales coastline, I’ve always loved exploring the different wildlife found in the area, having more access to areas means I can travel around in search of interesting wildlife and the ‘oddballs’ of our world. I’ve studied the behaviour and adaptations of certain wildlife for a number of years and have since shared my passion and knowledge by giving talks, teaching classes and visiting groups with some additional help from the odd but fascinating pets that I have and breed.
Another huge interest of mine is that of hybridisation in wildfowl, it’s something that has fascinated me since beginning to work in Aviculture how certain species will consider breeding with another species and how birds have been manipulated to produce “the best”. I love studying the behaviour of birds and changes over the year.
I started doing Wildlife Education through WWT and have since started my own business with amazingly adapted animals who travel to schools and festivals with me to educate families and others alike. I love doing these sessions and love to see the amazement on people’s faces when they know more about some of my creatures plus the chance to handle some!
On Screen & Radio
I love sharing my passion for wildlife and am a usual interviewee nature-nerd on TV News programmes and recently featured in a TV series for S4C about Urban Wildlife. Also, frequently talking about nature on BBC Radio Cymru. I do a lot of writing for organisations and companies mainly online articles but have been featured in print too. I also have my own Youtube channel where I aim to inspire children and adults to get exploring the wildlife in our world.
