I am passionate about the marine environment and work and play in and on the sea. I am a keen Scuba diver, a member of the local BSAC dive club, and dive regularly dive around the Norfolk coast. I am also a volunteer with Seasearch, carrying out surveys during my dives to increase our knowledge of the species that inhabit our local coastline.
I am a Marine Environmental Scientist and gained my masters from Bangor University, in Marine Environmental Protection in 2007. I have worked offshore since 2008, working for a marine environmental consultancy, carrying out environmental surveys both around the UK and world-wide. Since 2016, I have been working as a freelance Marine Environmental Scientist and Marine Mammal Observer, representing both clients and contractors.
