I am a retired biologist who spent his working life in the international wood preservation industry. I live in England (UK) and have kept honeybees continuously for 40 years. I am a Master Beekeeper and also hold the NDB UK National Diploma in Beekeeping.

Through my beekeeping life I have been active in the British Beekeepers Association participating in a number of areas including education, examinations and qualifications, research, technical and environmental aspects and have served as Chair of Trustees and then President. In addition I am a Trustee of the CB Dennis British Beekeepers' Research Trust and a former Chair and now a member of the Executive for the National Diploma in Beekeeping Board.

In partnership with my wife Dr Sally Bucknall we have written three books on aspects of beekeeping.
