I’ve always been a fish geek, being given an aquarium for my 5th birthday and fascinated by the aquatic world ever since.  After finishing with a degree in Natural Resource Management from the University of Wisconsin, I worked as a teacher in the Peace Corps in the West Indies, teaching children about the sea.  After working in several nature-related jobs I eventually ended up at the Zoological Society of London, working in the Aquarium.  At ZSL I was able to combine my interest in fish husbandry and ecology with conservation in the field, establishing the Fish Net programme and travelling to many countries to work on freshwater fish conservation projects.
