I have worked professionally with parrots 10 years and have written many articles for several international, popular publications. My articles on behaviour modification using positive reinforcement strategies were translated into several languages and I was invited to speak and advise on this topic on a number of television programmes in the UK.

In 2004 I conducted an interview with Professor Irene Pepperberg on behalf of Parrots Magazine. I became interested in the subject of symbolic representation and communication as a result of Pepperberg’s work.
