I am a palaeontologist living and working in Alice Springs, in the red centre of Australia. I moved here with my wife and three kids from Johannesburg, South Africa. I used to focus my research on dinosaurs, and it is fair to say I am still a dino nut but these days I work on fossils from the NT, be they turtles, tassie tigers or anything else. In my spare time I like to watch birds, catch beetles, lizards and snakes and generally find out as much about the species around me as I can.
This is a drawing I did for a book that never appeared. A pity, since I don't even have the original, just this bromide. It is one of my better works and portrays the Australian Middle Triassic Paracyclotosaurus davidi, a member of the Mastodonsauridae (but thats another story).
