I started work at the Australian Museum in the Crustacea Section in 1981. Over the next twelve months I worked in several different departments including Ichthyology. In 1982 I was employed as a technical officer in the Ichthyology Section. The position of Ichthyology Collection Manager became available in 1987. I was delighted to be appointed to the position and have held it ever since.
Throughout my time at the Australian Museum I have organised and/or participant in over 30 collecting trips and expeditions within Australia and throughout the Pacific.
I've participated in numerous workshops and seminars and have published written articles for both popular and scientific publications. For some years I worked on Ghost Flatheads (family Hoplichthyidae) but in recent years my publication efforts have focused on the website.
