Time is but the stream I go fishing in. I drink at it:
But while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect
How shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but
Eternity remains. I would drink deeper; fish in the
Sky, whose bottom is pebbly with stars.

Henry David Thoreau

First employed by New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service Resources Division, surveying existing prospective parks and reserves John went on to become:

After a number of years in government roles John left to form Apogee Imaging International, a Remote Sensing Company, this involved traveling the world and directing projects in Africa, Asia, and Australia for the following 15 years.

John is now happily retired living in Edithburgh on the coast of The Gulf of Saint Vincent in the Adelaide Hills and continues to spend the majority of his time having fun in the outdoors – scuba diving, and off road camping in outback Australia with his wife Jinny, who does volunteer teaching on pastoral properties. Johns hobbies include Microscopy, Image Processing, Scuba, Astronomy, catching fresh seafood and drinking fine wine with good friends.

At 75 John commenced a PhD in 2016 at The School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences, The University of Adelaide. The topic is the Taxonomy and Biogeography of the Marine Folliculinidae ciliates of Australia.
