Biography:

Life in the rainforest was set up both to give rain forest and mini-beast workshops to primary school age children, using live creatures and to give talks and lectures to clubs, groups and societies of all ages. I have been keeping and breeding a variety of invertebrates since the age of 5, and take these creatures into the classroom to give the children a real hands on experience. Over the last 20+ years I have travelled to the rain forests of South and Central America, Africa and Asia, to study Tarantula spiders in their natural habitat. During these field trips we have discovered a number of species new to science. I have a keen interest in all fauna and have thousands of images of the animals and invertebrates seen on these trips. I was a local authority pest control officer for most of my working life but am now semi retired and run Life in the Rainforest as a sole trader.
