Life-long amateur naturalist, career spent in software development and for last decade in infrastructure to support exchange of biodiversity data. Currently Director of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility. Previously Director of the Atlas of Living Australia.

I consider Canberra, Australia home but am living and working for the next few years in Copenhagen, Denmark.

I use Flickr to manage my photographs of wildlife, particular macro images of moths and other insects. I have a particular interest in plume moths (Pterophoridae - see Plume Moths of Australia.

Cameras: Nikon Coolpix 4500 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40.
