“With a lifelong interest in astronomy I delight in sharing my passion and encouraging people to observe and understand our universe. I have been fortunate in having the experience of working in some of the world’s largest observatories, and now focus on stimulating adults and children at the Guernsey Observatory, which I was responsible for creating.
I am also proud to have been involved in the design of the Guernsey Flag and the Guernsey Liberation Monument, and the honour of being elected both as a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and a Jurat of the Royal Court of Guernsey.”
