Also follow me on:

I have a first class honors 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've taught biology, chemistry, science, and information technology for many years. I write about human biology, the scientific basis of health and disease, nature, and other subjects. As a science and nature writer, 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. At the moment I have seven pet companions—two dogs (a Leonberger and a Labrador Retriever), three cats (two Ragdolls and one rescue), and two birds (a Dusky Conure and a Moustache Parakeet).

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.
