About the Editor
I am a retired geologist. From the age of 23, I spent my entire working life in the oil and gas industry, based in Singapore and assigned to projects throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

Wildlife and nature appreciation has long been a hobby. I joined both the Nature Society (Singapore) and Malaysian Nature Society in the 90's, and in 2001 I started the Ecology Asia website. In 2016 I started Southeast Asia Vertebrate Records (SEAVR), which allows amateur naturalists, like myself, to document their animal sightings in a structured and scientific manner.  SEAVR is also proud to host short-note write-ups by professional researchers.

At 61, I spend my leisure time compiling Ecology Asia and travelling in the region with my wife, who was born and raised in Malaysia.
