I am a theoretical biologist with interests in human hybrids and directed evolution (evolution by intelligent design!?), and am the director of Vaki Puzzles Ltd (www.vakipuzzles.com) For twenty years I practiced clinical medicine and still head a sports academy, as well as chairing both the New Zealand Science Trust and New Zealand Puzzle Association Inc. In the past I have co-authored two books, Maori Health and Maori Education. During a period as an honorary research fellow in the Dept of Mathematics, University of Auckland, Dr Wayne Walker and I showed that whooping cough (pertussis) vaccination in New Zealand had increased the incidence of that disease in under one year olds (the most vulnerable group). At the time this was a highly contentious result, but is now accepted wisdom. At the turn of the century I was involved in a high school based project, 'cloning the Huia', which had grade 9 and 10 students extract DNA from that extinct bird.
I produce a monthly book of vaki puzzles.
My first formal attempt at fiction (many of my friends maintain that I have always written fiction) is Citizen Sandy due for release as an ebook Oct 4, 2016
