About the presenter
Growing up in coastal Victoria, with a father in the Navy, I spent most of my childhood surfing, diving, fishing and spearfishing. After school, I joined the Australian Army Reserves where I served for 7 years as a rifleman. I undertook my Marine Biology-Advanced degree at James Cook University in 2008. I conducted a semester exchange at the University of Miami, USA, where I had the opportunity to assist with field work in Central America and the Caribbean (Bimini 'Shark Lab'). In 2011, I commenced my honours at the University of Queensland (UQ), conducting research into the physiological stress responses of dugongs in captivity, in free-ranging populations and in those traditionally hunted. Since then, I've worked as Fisheries Biologist for the QLD Government, a Marine Fauna consultant for Oil & Gas projects, a Dive Instructor and a skipper. In 2014, I commenced my PhD at the School of Veterinary Science (UQ), which focuses on developing endocrine research techniques for cetaceans.
