John grew up in East Sussex, surrounded by the South Downs, and his interest in butterflies and moths began at a very early age. After leaving school he began to take a specific interest in tropical species, but his fascination with their English counterparts continued.
For the last twenty years, John has been working with butterfly farms around the UK, breeding tropical species and encouraging the public to take a greater interest in our native butterflies.
