Nick lives on Dartmoor (a national park in Devon, England), along with a growing menagerie of small animals including spiders, scorpions, stick insects, amphibians, reptiles, butterflies and moths. He keeps pet leeches in the fridge at home and often feeds them by attaching them to his leg! Among his favourites are cane toads and a collection of hissing cockroaches.

Nick graduated from the University of Exeter in 1993 with a degree in Biological Sciences, but has been a keen naturalist from an early age. He co-founded Exeter University's national Bug Club and was a member of the Royal Entomological Society's Youth Development Committee.

Nick also finds time for competitive cycling and, as a self-taught harmonica player, percussionist and singer, he regularly performs in jazz and blues bands.
