I joined the British Museum (Natural History) in February 1968, and in June 1991 I left to become Conservator of Natural Sciences for Hampshire County Council Museums Service. Since June 1993 I have enjoyed an additional role as Adviser and Conservator of Natural Sciences to the National Trust.

I retired from Hampshire County Council Museums Service in November 2009 and I am now a principal and freelance full-time conservator, working at Natural-History-Conservation.

Since 1994 I have trained many curators and conservators in fluid preservation techniques and the maintenance of such collections. In 2006 I gave my first formal fluid preservation four day course to an international class in Oxford and have since run over 10 such courses. Over the past two years I have also given courses in taxidermy conservation, cleaning and maintenance, as well as many courses to volunteers and staff of various museums on specimen cleaning and pest awareness.
