I have had the heart of an explorer for as long as I can remember. As a result of my childhood expeditions, I was lost amongst thousands of questions about the mysteries of nature. My thirst for exploration led me to be a researcher. I completed my primary education at Giragama Primary school and secondary education at Kingswood College, Kandy. After graduating from the University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka, I joined the ‘March for Conservation’ and carried out environmental education programs, where I tested my ability in telling stories about nature. During my stay in the Maldives Islands as a teacher, my quest for the enigma of nature grew. For my Masters Degree, I investigated the feeding habits of fish in reservoirs and for my Degree of Doctor of Philosophy, I researched the ecology of Sri Lankan rivers and streams. While I was employed at the Post Graduate Institute of Archaeology of the University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka, my focus was on Sri Lankan caves and the Veddah. I researched about the Ethno-ornithology and Ethno-ichthyology of native Africans too. I finished writing the book about Cannabis while i was working as a Senior Lecturer in University of Ilorin, Nigeria.
