I am an experienced marine biologist and PhD student from Queensland Australia. I have studied and been involved in projects along the Great Barrier Reef at locations including Heron Island, Lady Musgrave Island and Lizard Island.
My international experience includes marine science and dive instructor roles in Honduras, Indonesia, Madagascar and currently in the Philippines.
In 2019, I co-founded a NGO called Institute of Marine Research in conjunction with local tourist resort operators to protect and enhance the fringing reef ecosystems.
I received my PADI Divemaster qualification in 2015 on Utila in the Caribbean and became a professional dive instructor on Gili Island, Indonesia in 2016.
