Hey, I’m Alastair!

I work as a field botanist - when I'm not climbing mountains in equatorial Asia, I'm usually sat at a desk editing scientific manuscripts for publication. I hail from Malaysia, but lived in the UK for nearly two decades before moving to beautiful Melbourne to experience life down-under.

Food is my number one interest in life outside of plants and people, but I'm an avid hiker, scuba diver and explorer. Lately, I've picked up a ukulele, and despite not having a musical bone in my body, am thoroughly enjoying the new musical adventure it's taking me on.

My partner and I are both homeowners and houseproud; as such, we make for considerate and respectful guests. We both enjoy good conversation and conviviality, but by the same token, we're pretty astute at reading between the lines and know when to keep to ourselves! We're both accustomed to roughing it (no running water, river frogs for food), given my line of work, but enjoy home comforts as much as the next person!
