type of class intro
skill required beginner
your chalkler will be
I left the corporate world in 2006 to return to university full time to study marine biology. I gained a BSc and stuck around to complete an MSc and often regale friends and complete strangers at dinner parties with stories of how the kahawai (Arripis trutta) is genetically closely related to
only three other fish on the planet.
I have a passion for learning new things and love sharing my knowledge with others. I perform improv with the Wellington Improvisation Troupe. I returned to the corporate world on completing my MSc and now consider myself a gentleman scientist of the old school.
