I have a first-class honours degree in biology from Simon Fraser University in Canada. After I obtained my degree, I completed the Professional Development Program in the Faculty of Education at SFU. As a result, I was awarded a professional teaching certificate from the British Columbia Ministry of Education.
I taught high school biology, chemistry, and science for many years. I’ve also taught other subjects, including information technology, as well as elementary school science. I’m currently a science writer, though I sometimes write about other topics that interest me.
My articles often discuss biology, nature, and the scientific basis of health and disease. My goal is to create informative, understandable, and interesting articles about the topics that I find so fascinating myself.
Pets have been an important part of my life since childhood. Over the years, my family has contained dogs (Leonbergers, Labrador retrievers, a golden retriever, and a mixed breed dog), cats (Ragdolls and rescue animals), and birds (a dusky conure, a moustache parakeet, and a Senegal parrot). I have also had gerbils, a hamster, and goldfish as pets.
In addition to studying nature, I enjoy reading, creating and listening to music, taking photographs, and walking. I also enjoy exploring mythology and writing fiction and poetry.
