I am an insect taxonomist, whose research focuses on the weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea) of New Zealand and the South Pacific and with a working knowledge of global weevil diversity. I also try to be a rounded natural historian, with particular interests in birds, plants and terrestrial invertebrates.

If you have found my identifications helpful and would like to show it financially, a thank-you card (containing original artwork) is available for purchase from Proceeds will go towards purchasing books and resources for increasing my identification skills, or to support my ongoing research on weevil taxonomy.

I am actively producing illustrated guides to the identification of various weevil taxa. At present the following guides have been released:
