Current Committee Role:

Membership Secretary

About Me: 

I've been working in the Department of Geology, National Museum of Wales, Cardiff since 1985, and act as curator and collections manager for the palaeontology section. I joined GCG in 1986, and have been sitting on the committee as membership secretary since 2007. I very much enjoy this role as it helps me get to know many of the members really well.

When I'm not chasing members for their subscription, I'm usually to be found deleting emails, tidying up stores, writing talks, or carrying out one of the other many curatorial duties we all have every day.

I enjoy talking about fossils, writing about fossils and generally interacting with them. I have two new species to my name so far - a Carboniferous crinoid and a Jurassic dinosaur - Dracoraptor. Otherwise I am interested in the history of geology, especially fossil collecting and collectors, and museums.

I give loads of talks to local societies and special interest groups across the UK, and currently writing a few more of these!
