I have had an interesting journey in my field which I now think of as Human Biology. I graduated with first class honors in Biology (Genetics) in 1967 and a PhD in Genetics in 1971 from the University of Sydney in Australia. My career then took me through one year's post-doc in Developmental Biology then three years in postdoctoral work in human cytogenetics. After that, I was appointed to develop a genetics diagnostic laboratory at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Adelaide, where I worked for 20 years. In 1995, I set up a private genetics company called Genetic Consulting & Testing Pty Ltd from which I transitioned in 2000 to work as a science writer and speaker and expert witness for 5 years. From 2006 to 2017, I worked as a lecturer at the University of South Australia training PhD students to write and speak about their research. I have now semi-retired and living in Sydney, but I am enjoying writing books and articles as well as speaking to live audiences.
Do you need an entertaining speaker?
Are you looking for a speaker for your Business, Community or Social Group? I usually speak about health and health-related matters but I'm also happy to speak about some of my many life adventures. Please email me, tell me about your group and the types of function you are organising.
Some of my past talks have been to very large rural groups, small business groups, large and medium sized conferences - in Australia and in many different countries throughout the world.
Do you need help with some health or biology-related writing?
I can write articles, blogs or other copy for you - or help you develop powerful and attractive Powerpoint presentations that will impress your audiences.
Are you looking for a guest on your Podcast or Video?
I am very happy to be interviewed if I think I can contribute to your topic.
